“We are postponing the date for the entrance of tourists, it is not going to happen on August 1,” Ash noted, adding that a new date is not set yet. “Unfortunately, the current situation does not permit us to allow tourists to enter,” he added.

Israel also decided that verified coronavirus carriers who breach isolation will be criminally charged.
