Under the auspices of Covid-19, the government has greatly expanded their power over its citizenry. Emergency order after emergency order has severely encroached on personal liberties, in a way that was unthinkable before. The USA Attorney General agrees, saying that lockdowns and associated policies were one of the “greatest intrusions on civil liberties in American history”
In Israel (and elsewhere), freedom of religion was severely restricted by the closure of places of worship and the limiting of the number of worshipers that can gather either indoors or outdoors. In November the U.S. Supreme Court struck down this restriction concluding that it violated the the constitution
Government restrictions on free speech and criticism of the government have been imposed in at least 72 countries” Freedom of assembly was restricted by limiting the kinds and size of gatherings, including those in one’s own home.
In Israel (and worldwide) hundreds of thousands of people have been and continue to be detained and held without due process, and without appeal simply because they may have been in close contact with someone who may have been Covid-19 positive. To accomplish this, Israel utilized its security services to monitor the movement of citizens without the need of a court order. Later, the government acknowledged that thousands were falsely sent to isolation because of this system . A government audit found that only 3-7% of those sent to isolation by the system eventually tested positive for Covid-19.
Governments continued to mandate the wearing of intrusive medical devices (masks) based on little research, even after they proved ineffective at preventing further waves of infection. Governments are restricting travel unless the traveler submits to an invasive PCR test,  even though the tests are unreliable and the supreme court of Portugal ruled that the test is not sufficiently reliable and resulting quarantines are unlawful.
The Israeli government has sealed its borders to non-citizens since the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic. At times, access to the justicial system was suspended with the closing of the courts. Israel even included a ban on political demonstrations the government issued over 306,755 fines (as of October) to people who didn’t comply with these regulations In other countries, courts have ruled against the emergency measures due to constitutional or civil liberty violations     .
As if to add insult to injury, the Israeli government has refused to release the basis and details of their decision making, with regards to Covid-19, to the pubic and have sealed these records for 30 years, claiming state secrets.
