Hundreds of people gathered at Jerusalem's Western Wall on Sunday to hold a mass prayer for those impacted by COVID-19.

Some said they could "feel the distress" of those sick and people in quarantine, and are praying for them in hopes they recover and are able to leave. Others also denounced the fears that have come from the virus, saying some have become afraid "to get in closer to Chinese people."

Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said that Israeli citizens on board the cruise ship would be evacuated soon.
