Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Sunday that they wanted to “hermetically seal” Ben Gurion Airport near Tel Aviv. According to Israeli media reports, the measure should come into effect on Monday evening at midnight (local time) and apply at least until the end of the month.
Netanyahu said there should be few exceptions to the ban. The aim is to prevent further corona mutations from being brought into Israel. According to official information, up to 40 percent of new cases can be traced back to a mutation that comes from Great Britain.
The Israeli government had been sharply criticized for lax airport controls.
