Following the spread of the Corona virus, El Al announced on Thursday morning that it would delay its flights to Beijing by March 25, 2020. However, Flight 096 from Beijing to Ben Gurion will return to Israel today as scheduled.
Ministry of Health Director General Moshe Bar Seaman Tov announced that the ministry is working to cancel the movement from China to Israel. He said, "The arrival of the virus to Israel and other countries is inevitable. There is a broad professional consensus on this. It's a lot more complex than it sounds, but we understand it is necessary. "
The Ministry of Health said they were preparing to treat citizens returning from China. "It should be kept in mind that people come from China not only by direct flights and not only by Ben Gurion Airport, but we also appreciate that anyone who has been in China for the past two weeks will know how to identify him and see if isolation is needed for him. If they feel bad, they should follow our detailed guidelines. "More in Walla! NEWS More in Walla! NEWS
