COVID-19: Israel expands quarantine measures

Israel has expanded quarantine regulations, requiring all those returning from South Korea and Japan to remain in isolation for two weeks. Quarantine was previously mandated for Israelis returning from China, Thailand, Singapore, Hong Kong and Macau.

The move came as Israel's Health ministry said nine South Korean nationals who visited Israel and the West Bank in February have tested positive for the virus.

The Palestinian Interior Ministry issued a similar instruction on Saturday.

All the nine tourists returned to South Korea and it is currently unknown whether they were infected with the virus before or after arriving in Israel.
