Gaza/Sputnik: Israeli settlers torched in the early hours of Monday a mosque in the Palestinian city of Al-Bireh, located in the central West Bank province of Ramallah, Palestine’s state news agency WAFA has reported.

The ban will not apply to family members and people traveling on public or private transport. The new measure was announced by Chief Secretary Matthew Cheung.

For the same period, the city also bans dining at restaurants and orders wearing masks in outdoor public places. Earlier in July, Hong Kong made face masks mandatory in indoor public places amid the rise in cases.

In total, over the past two weeks, the city has recorded 1,164 COVID-19 cases, with only 113 of them imported.
On Monday, Hong Kong registered a record single-day spike of 145 cases, taking the total to 2,778. The death toll has grown by two to 20.
