JerusalemThe threat of the new variant B.1.1.529 of the covid-19, called omicron by the WHO, has led the Israeli government to decree the closure of its borders. In an unprecedented decision around the world, Prime Minister Naftalí Bennet has decided this Saturday midnight to ban the entry of all foreigners for 14 days, regardless of the country they come from. As of Monday, only Israelis will be able to enter the country, but they will have to perform a quarantine of at least three days and submit three negative PCRs. So far only one case of omicron has been detected in Israel (a traveler from Malawi) although there are seven suspects. Bennett said the country was “on the brink of an emergency” and that “the key is caution and minimal risks.”
