Israel has approved the collection of personal information about citizens by domestic spy agencies to fight the spread of deadly coronavirus in the country. The move was announced by PM Netanyahu under emergency regulations and his decision was challenged by Rights group. The critics say this controversial move will invade a person's privacy even during an emergency. Israel has 5,385 COVID-19 cases with 20 deaths so far.
