New Corona lockdowns imposed on several neighborhoods around Israel

Mostly Haredi neighborhoods, as this article indicates, hinting they still aren't acting with full responsibility:
Lockdowns came into effect at 1 p.m. on Friday in neighborhoods in five towns and cities hit hard by the coronavirus outbreak, a day after cabinet ministers approved the measure as the number of new cases in Israel continued to surge.

Parts of Jerusalem, Beit Shemesh, Lod, Ramle and Kiryat Malachi became “restricted zones” for seven days. The restrictions will be lifted at 8 a.m. on July 17.

A joint statement Thursday evening by the Prime Minister’s Office and the Health Ministry said entries and exits the restricted areas will be limited, as well as traffic and business activity inside the areas.

In Jerusalem, the neighborhoods of Romema, Kiryat Sanz and Matersdorf — all majority ultra-Orthodox areas — have been closed; in Beit Shemesh, the areas of Nahala and K’ne Habosem; in Lod, Ganei Ya’ar and Sach; in Ramle, Amidar Beilav; and in Kiryat Malachi, the Rotner area and Chabad neighborhood.

Other parts of Lod will be closed for five days.

The Kiryat Malachi municipality on Friday decided to suspend all schools and kindergartens in the city due to the rise in infections there.

Jerusalem Mayor Moshe Lion, however, criticized the lockdown order, claiming it would cause “mass infections.”

“These people will go out and infect everyone in their neighborhood,” he told the Kan public broadcaster. “The solution for the coronavirus is to isolate the carriers. I have asked to be handed the authority to evacuate the carriers to [quarantine] hotels until they recover.”
Considering many there are already infected, it's more of a matter of their receiving medical treatment so they can function properly in wider society again. I'm guessing Lion doesn't want to alienate the Haredi electorate in the council. But the matter is that we still have irresponsible and potentially extremist Haredi sects protracting the situation, and that can't be allowed. Same with any Muslim neighborhoods where it could be the same. Although a point can be made that, if Islamists were acting more responsibly yet the Haredis weren't, that would just provide ammunition to anti-Israelists who want to claim Jews are less responsible, taking the misguided acts of one community and tarring us all with the same brush. That's why, IMHO, the ultra-Orthodox have to learn a little lesson that they can't keep risking the potential of giving ammunition to bad apples who milk everything for what it's worth at Israel's expense.

I really like this image! An active energetic apple with an udder in one hand and a machine gun in the other.
