According to the Director General of the Ministry of Health, Moshe Barr good sign "Thailand - this is the country that was made up of a decision for it. But we decided to guide the isolation of the returnees because their morbidity monitoring system is far from adequate and therefore the numbers we see are far from the truth. "

In addition, Bar Good has addressed the issue of isolating Israelis who have returned to Israel from trips in areas prone to calamities and actions taken by the Ministry of Health to ensure that people do indeed remain in isolation. "Even if we exercise the most significant powers, our strategy is not built on enforcement, but on understanding people who will be bad here if we reach the state of disease spread in Israel," said Good Sign, adding that "we receive reports and initiate calls to those people who do not maintain isolation But we need the public's cooperation. Without it, we will not succeed. We have a dedicated telephone number and email address for reports from the public. There have been several reports and initiated several calls following this. We have also executed an order requiring forced hospitalization to be tested at Sheba, so we have powers. "
