Israel confirms 39 cases of coronavirus, tightens measures to contain spread, tests new arrivals

Israel plans to announce on Monday, March 9 that arrivals from any country at all will be subjected to 14 days of isolation. Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu gave notice of this at a joint news conference with Health Minister Yakov Litzman. They were undoubtedly preparing the public for stronger measures to counter the spread of the disease which jumped from 15 to 39 victims since Friday. Economic damage is biting and will become more painful before the coronavirus epidemic is over at some unknown future date.

A context was also needed to explain the health authorities’ decision to apply restrictions to three US states, Washington, New York and California, and place them on the list of 97 world countries afflicted by the virus.

Before the news conference, Netanyahu talked to US Vice President Mike Pence, whom the president has placed in charge of combating the outbreak in America, to discuss cooperative measures. The political, economic and military ties between the US and Israel are highly complex and of paramount importance. The prime minister heeded to make sure that supply lines remain open. Hence the formula for subjecting arrivals from any country to isolation and tests, including the US, without spelling this out.

The prime minister and health minister said that decisions on this and other measures for countering the virus would be thrashed out overnight Sunday by the health and national security council led by the two ministers and released on Monday. Litzman added that, although the measures his ministry had enforced to contain the spread of the virus has been criticized as too extreme, “we now see that we were right. We were accused of playing election politics. But our policy paid off and we are in a much better position than other places,” the minister said. “We made hard decisions and took heed of the economic aspect, but in the final reckoning, public health must always trump economic considerations. We hope the public will show understanding.”
Moshe Bar Simantov, Director-General of the Health Ministry, stressed that while other countries health care systems were  beginning to break down under the numbers of infected patients, Israel had managed to slow down the rate of infection substantially to keep pace with the country’s medical capacity.

The words of Netanyahu and Litzman were imbued with the the grave message that the worst was still to come. While large sections of the population are likely to be infected, probably with a mild version of covid-19, lockdowns on the most affected areas are to be expected, together with tight restrictions on community events or even synagogue services, depending on how far and how fast the disease spreads across the country. The prime minister on Saturday night indicated that closing schools was on the cards.

    We have a vaccine, so why not use it? Closing the borders will cost us billions, closing schools harm our children’s education.

    Why are we not been told when the vaccine should be ready and how far through the safety trials it is?

      We gladly commend the decisions of the Prime Minister and Health Departments as we pray for El Shaddai’s blessings on all involved… May courtesy and kindness be evident with necessary restrictions.
      Isaiah wrote in ch 57: 1-2 that God does take older, respected servants of His, so they will not be involved later on, in worse problems foretold by the Prophets in the Tanakh! [Ezekiel 38 & 39.]

      laboratory announcing that they are close to getting the vaccine was just a publicity stunt. propaganda. business. sorry. it is coming as hundreds of laboratories are working hard to get one all over the world but to have a ready product for use takes a little bit of time. this is not magic.

        The official name is SARS-Coronavirus2
        There is no cure for SARS.
        Since 2002 they have been trying to get a vaccine with no results.
        Better prepare for the second wave in November.
        The virus will mutate and might be stronger affecting children, adults and seniors. All across the board.

            As I understand it. When a virus mutates. It goes more contagious and less lethal or more lethal and less contagious. The new mutated virus must come from its origin. We’ll see…

      you do not have vaccine –its natural virus born to live , and to have measures for it , you need to wait until it becomes one —meant becomes virus . Misconception is total uneducated freaks running world wide organizations , that do know only cell phone typing . Grow the virus if anyone can , and than you can deal with it . Any other way Europe and Americas will transform to a grave yard.

    as a big sports fan (including of Hapoel Jerusalem) I’m simply stunned by the decision to allow the game with Maccabi Tel Aviv go ahead last night with 8000+ fans and a soccer game go ahead with 20,000. What’s the point of surgically rnning after each individual when meanwhile you allow crowds that size to be togetehr in a closed venue? what kind of message does that send? Especially when Maccabi outright flaunted the fact that they were supposed to be in quarantine themselves. It’s simply outrageous!

      That doctor cannot be a pulmonologist. The contagion factor is not 2 but between 5 and 7 and even if it was only 2, the spread would still be exponential, so he has forgotten his maths too. He is not an expert in the field and is speaking out of turn. His post is fake news, frivolous and deprecating.

        SARS-2-Cov gives a very nasty pneumonia, usually double-sided. However let us not be under any illusions. The University of North Carolina bio-lab helped the Wuhan bio-defense lab to weaponise SARS1. This is a well-timed biological attack, also on Israel, by the global deep state in the US and China, co-operating. When two empires beasts in the world co-operate, that is a sign the last days are here and extra precautions and vigilance are needed.

          Therefore, your government was quite correct to take firm action. The numbers will increase exponentially until it is under control. The infection cycle per person is one week. If you doubt this then just watch your own figures. In country after country they have been doubling every week. If they are 39 now they will be 78 next Monday. The Los Alamos study on the way that the virus spread in China using two models put the Ro at between 4.6 and 6.6. That means that for every person infected between 4 and 7 get infected too. This high level is attributed to the fact that it is not only airborne but lives on surfaces for up to 14 days. Also, it takes 5 days for the symptoms to break out (fever, coughing) but during that time the infected person infects others. Furthermore, one can get sick with the virus again.

            That is a level of contagion of the Corona family that we have not seen before and some estimate that eventually 55% of the population will be infected as long as all the drastic measures are used. Otherwise the spread will be 100% and then you will lose all your older population. Mastema is behind this. The next virus will kill not only the elderly, but everyone, including the children as well. So if you are wise you will stock up on P95 or even better P100 masks, plastic gloves, goggles and disinfectant spray for the lockdowns and the next virus.

            For the SARS-2-CoV, Dr Seheult, who is a pulmonologist, has covered this since January. His video clips are enlightening for all, both laymen and professionals. He goes through all the relevant factors including Vitamin A, E, sleep and reducing stress. He has also covered research showing that REGULAR 40 micrograms of D3 (NOT more) a day doubles the chances of the lungs not being overwhelmed, which is the cause of death.

        I agree with you Pastor Jim.
        Liposomal Vit-c, iodine, MMS or Hydrogen Peroxide are all things that will help to fortify the body. So buy while you can.

        But the problem is that even if you are immune to the virus the supply chains won’t be able to provide the food, gas etc. As Tucker Carlson rightly pointed out all standard medical treatments will cease during this period.

        So by food and get ready for a long and difficult period. This could last for a very long time as people can catch this virus again and again.

      This is a serious time and these are the Last Days. So those that maintain righteousness will have a greater chance of survival. But it is unwise to cut yourself off from knowledge. Those who do will be severely punished.
      Hosea 4:6 NIV

    We are seeing the results of letting these termites control the American financial system. The illusion of a healthy market is quickly disappearing and the truth is painfully clear.

    You need to learn from us Poles, round them up and off to the gas. Your children will thank you and you can start repairing the damage. The longer you leave it the worse it will become. With them everything is inverted but they hide what they do from others.

          As i said yesterday Zionism is just a evolution of Sabbatean Frankism. Everything is inverted which explains the why you are the way you are Jim and why Zionism does the things that it does.

          It hides amongst Judaism but really at its core one could almost compare it to the antichrist death cult of the Christian stories. Bogdan is correct that the termites have hollowed out the markets and our society. Great video by David Icke you will learn a lot

    MEANWHILE IN AMERCA;

    Episode 17.

    President Trump speaking in Atlanta on March 6, 2020.

    “When I was hearing the amount of people that died with the flu, I was shocked to hear it,” Trump said while touring the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s headquarters. “Over the last, long period of time when people have the flu, you have an average of 36,000 people dying. I’ve never heard those numbers, I would’ve been shocked. I would have said, ‘Does anybody die of the flu?’ I didn’t know people died from the flu.”

    LOL!

    TRUMP 2020!!
