There have been several fires and explosions in Iran, the most significant was the explosion which caused damage to the nuclear plant in Natanz. First there was a forest fire. Then a fire at a missile factory. Then the highly restricted underground nuclear enrichment facility. After was a fire at a power station. Then was a fire at the port, a health clinic and a petroleum plant. The cause of these fires has still not been determined. There is the possibility that it came from poor management of infrastructure as a result of its deteriorating economy and the pressures of Corona Pandemic.
There is talk that these fires were created by American – Israel cyber warfare. Neither Israel or America have taken responsibility. So far no one can point their finger at the one that caused these mysterious events.
There have been violent demonstrations in Israel blaming Netanyahu for negligence in handling the Corona Virus Pandemic. In one day was reported 1,892 new cases of corona and there are 304 people in serious condition.
There has been some friction between Gantz and Netanyahu which may threaten the government to break up and cause new elections. Israelis are struggling financially because of the health crisis.
To appease the public the government has decided to give a stimulus sum of money for almost all Israelis which will be deposited in their bank accounts. A family may receive as much as 3000 shekels, and each citizen 750 shekels or more. Netanyahu does not want a complete shutdown and is trying to keep businesses open amidst the spike in Corona infections. Some say that they opened too early.

Up to now the orders from the Ministry of Health are to wear masks, social distance and wash hands. Israel is providing Hotels throughout the country for people who tested positive that they should not infect other people.
