Up to 90,000 Israelis in quarantine, 15 confirmed coronavirus cases

The Health Ministry Wednesday tightened restrictions for preventing the spread of coronavirus, ordering self-quarantine for the hundreds of Israeli passengers alighting from incoming flights from Europe in the coming hours. Outgoing air travel has virtually stopped as Israelis take the ministry’s advice to avoid foreign travel until the covid-19 crisis is over. The sources of all 15 cases identified have been identified. Assemblies of more than 5,000 people are banned in a new directive that jeopardizes the soccer, basketball and Euroleague events scheduled in Israel in the coming weeks, as well as the parades and street parties customary for the Purim festival next week.

    Good. Nice to see Israel taking the spread of the virus seriously. Unlike Italy, and several of the EU countries that have been taking the SARS-2-Cov virus with a pinch of salt, believing it is just like the ‘flu. Some of them are not even doing preventative screening or follow-up testing but only test those who come to the A&E on a stretcher with COVID-19 symptoms. Most countries say there is no need for cutting down travel while they wait and see, thus building up huge problems for their health systems and their workplaces a couple of weeks down the line.

    But in Europe many countries have suddenly got more and more COVID-19 cases because their flights have been going as usual between countries in Europe. Now, after a thousand or more people have been infected in Italy within the short space of two weeks, schools and universities in the north were closed today. This is five weeks too late, and so the number of infected in Northern Italy will continue to double every week.

    In any case China has no responsibility for the virus because.
    Hence no damages to pay because, and also reason that.

    There should be quarantine areas with totally no trouble, for the benefit of the sick.
    This is why mixing sick or under observation cool Israelis with troublemakers and arsonist Palestinians is very contra productive.
    QUARANTINE AREAS FOR THE SICK PALESTINIANS MUST BE PLACED IN GAZA, OR EVEN BETTER STRAIGHT IN JORDAN
    And the Jews should stay in their quarantine areas.
    Can’t mix, if not the Palestinians will start their killings.
