New coronavirus mutation found in Israel


A new mutant virus of COVID-19 confirmed in South Africa was also confirmed for the first time in Israel.

The Israeli Ministry of Health said a traveler returning from a recent visit to Malawi had been infected with the new mutant virus.

The Ministry of Health explained that two other inbound travelers were also infected with the new mutation and ordered quarantine.

They are all believed to have been vaccinated, but authorities added that they are verifying the exact history of vaccination.

As a result, Israel has included seven African countries, including South Africa and Botswana, where new mutations were found, as well as Lesotho, Zimbabwe, Mozambique, Namibia, and Eswatini, on the travel ban since last night local time.

Suspension of flights to and from these countries is also being considered.
