WELCOME TO WESTWORLD:

Israel sees further steep jump of 121 virus cases; drive-through testing reopens (Times of Israel, 5/30/20)

Israel on Saturday was set to reopen four drive-through testing stations across the country as the Health Ministry announced a further sharp increase of 121 new coronavirus infections overnight Friday.

With schools appearing to be at the epicenter of the outbreaks, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is expected to address the nation on Saturday evening after meeting with officials and ministers on possible closures within the education system. [...]

Channel 12 news said Friday that 78 of the cases in the past two days came from a single school, the Gymnasia Rehavia, in Jerusalem, including 64 students and 14 staff.

The Kan public broadcaster reported Saturday that the Paula Ben Gurion elementary school in the city will remain closed for two days due to the large number of students who have siblings at the Gymnasia Rehavia.

A week after images of Memorial Day weekend revelers jammed into a Lake of the Ozarks pool party at Backwater Jack's Bar & Grill in Osage Beach made international headlines, the Camden County Health Department announced that a Boone County resident tested positive for the novel coronavirus after visiting the Lake of the Ozarks area over the holiday weekend.

The Boone County subject arrived at the lake on Saturday, May 23, and "developed illness" on Sunday, according to a news release obtained by LakeNewsOnline.com, which like the News-Leader is part of the USA TODAY Network.

The infected person "was likely incubating illness and possibly infectious at the time of the visit," the health department said.
