Israel’s ultra-Orthodox communities ‘ignoring’ COVID-19 rules

Videos showing community members attending mass gatherings stoke resentment as up to 75,000 residents of city believed infected.

Israel has put the city of Bnei Brak on lockdown after an outbreak of coronavirus.

Health officials fear some 75,000 of its residents are already infected.

It is among Israel’s ultra-Orthodox neighbourhoods to have been criticised for not observing movement restrictions and social distancing.
