Israel on verge of uncontrollable outbreak of virus, warns foreign minister

Israel is on the verge of a coronavirus outbreak that it will not be able to control, Foreign Minister Israel Katz warned Thursday as he defended the strict measures authorities have ordered on international travel to and from Israel.

Israel has banned entry to the country from a range of countries around the world, including several in Europe, and has ordered tens of thousands of Israelis who have returned from those locations to self-quarantine for 14 days.

“We are talking with leaders and explaining to them the Israeli point of view,” Katz told the Kan public broadcaster. “We are on the verge of an outbreak that we won’t be able to control, and then the whole way of life in Israel will change.”
