Israel: Arrivals from most African nations banned after discovery of new strain

Israel on Friday imposed a travel ban covering most of Africa after the detection of a new variant of the coronavirus in South Africa that could be more contagious than the Delta strain.

Under the broader restrictions, all African nations, except those in North Africa, were added to Israel’s “red list” of high-risk countries. A few cases of the new variant were also reported in Israel.
