Israel intends to remove all countries from its "red" no-fly list, including the United States, the United Kingdom, and the United Arab Emirates. The number of infections reached a new high of 19.
Israelis will be able to travel to these countries without special permission starting at midnight local time. Vaccinated or recovered returnees will only need to self-isolate for 24 hours or until they receive a negative PCR test. Returnees who have not been vaccinated must perform a PCR test when they arrive and provide a second negative result after a week of self-isolation. Non-Israelis will be able to enter the nation again starting on Sunday, as long as they are vaccinated.
"Every decision taken by the administration is based on economic considerations. To minimize the infection rate, very strong procedures must be taken, which the government and the general people are unlikely to be able to take "Nachman Ash, Director-General of Israel's Ministry of Health, spoke to Israel's Kan 11 radio station.
On Wednesday, the country reported a total of 16,115 new Covid-19 cases, which was a new high. Israel began administering a fourth vaccination dosage, or second booster, to all medical staff and those over the age of 60 on Monday.
