New corona strain; Israel bans all foreign travelers

According to local media, Israel will ban all foreign travelers for 14 days and will intensify its surveillance to prevent the spread of the Corona virus.

The ban is expected to take effect at midnight on Sunday after full approval.

So far, one case has been confirmed for a more potentially infectious strain of omicron in Israel.

This new strain was first identified in recent weeks in South Africa.

Many countries subsequently banned travel to South Africa and its neighbors.

However, in response to travel bans imposed on his country, South Africa has said that the country should not be punished for recognizing the Omicron side and should be praised for its swift response.

The World Health Organization has warned that the new species of Covid 19 is “worrying” and preliminary evidence suggests that the strain rate is very high.

However, the World Health Organization (WHO) has also warned countries against rushing to impose travel restrictions, saying they must act on a “scientific, risk-reducing approach”.

The Israeli Coronation Headquarters is scheduled to agree to a set of new restrictions at its crisis meeting late Saturday, after which the approvals must be finalized by a higher authority.

In addition to the ban on non-Israelis, a three-day mandatory quarantine is provided for all Israelis who have been vaccinated, and a seven-day quarantine is provided for those who have not been vaccinated.

The headquarters will also issue a permit for the Israeli Intelligence and Internal Security Agency, or Shabak, to monitor those with definite coronary heart disease.

Earlier on Saturday, Israeli officials put 50 African countries on a so-called “red” list.

All Israeli nationals returning from these 50 countries must be quarantined and tested by Covid at government-approved hotels.

Foreigners from most African countries were banned from entering Israel on Friday.

According to Johns Hopkins University in the United States, Israel has had more than 1.3 million people infected with the disease since the beginning of the epidemic, and more than 8,100 people have died from the disease to date.

The new corona mutation was named ‘omicron’ and was classified as a ‘worrying strain’
