An-Najah News - The Emergency Committee of Nablus ordered today a partial five-day lockdown of the entire Nablus Governorate in the north of the West Bank.

The committee said that these measures come against the backdrop of the swift increase of new coronavirus infections in the governorate due to the unexpected increase in the number of infections in the governorate.

The Committee said that following a meeting with Minister of Health Mai Alkiala, a five-day lockdown from 7 pm to 6 pm was ordered in Nablus.

The levels of infections are beyond the capacity of the medical centers and hospitals to cope with the situation.

The Committee recommended harsher penalties for those who do not adhere to public health procedures and protocols..
