Coronavirus: Israel reimposes masks amid new virus fears


Israel has reintroduced a requirement to wear masks indoors amid a rise in coronavirus cases, just days after it lifted the measure.


Concern has grown after the country recorded more than 100 new daily cases in successive days after registering zero earlier this month.


Most of the cases have been linked to the Delta variant from abroad.


Israel has been one of the most successful countries in the world in tackling the pandemic.


It implemented the fastest vaccination programme, under which well over half the population of 9.3m has been partially or fully immunised.
