First cases of the Brazilian variant of Corona in Israel: A vaccinated baby and adult who returned from abroad became infected with the Brazilian variant and were diagnosed in Israel.
The Ministry of Health said on Monday evening that a first case of the variant originating in Chile had also been diagnosed in an Israeli who had returned from abroad.

The Ministry of Health announced that as of Monday, new directives regarding entry into and exit from and from Israel came into force.
The National Genome Flooring Array has located 19 more verified Indian strain among foreigners. A total of 60 cases of the Indian strain in Israel have been diagnosed to date. There is still no clear information regarding these variants and their implications for vaccinated and recovering patients.
For the first time since July 7, there are less than 100 corona patients in critical condition in Israel. This emerges from the evening update of the Ministry of Health. Since midnight, 41 positives have been diagnosed in Corona in Israel, out of about 19,500 tests that have been deciphered. The rate of positive tests is less than 0.1%. 168 corona patients are hospitalized in hospitals across the country, 63 of which are connected to respirators.
Since the outbreak of the plague, 6,367 corona patients have died in Israel - one of them today. Since the beginning of May, three patients have died. There are also 1,259 active Corona patients in Israel, the vast majority of whom are in a very mild and mild condition and are in their homes. In Jerusalem, 311 active Corona patients, in Tel Aviv 128, in Petah Tikva 46, in Marar 34, in Haifa 31, in Be'er Sheva 31, in Pardes Hanna Karkur 24, in Rishon Lezion 24, in Netanya 24, in Beit Jen 19, in Ariel 18, in Herzliya 18, in Bat Yam And also in Ashkelon.
Israeli citizens and residents, including vaccinated and recovering people, who enter Israel from seven countries with a particularly high level of morbidity: Ukraine, Ethiopia, Brazil, South Africa, India, Mexico and Turkey, will be required to be isolated for 10 days (subject to two negative PCR tests - landing test and additional On the ninth day of isolation). To date vaccinated and recovering have not been required to enter isolation. Vaccinated and recovering people who have been in one of these countries for less than 12 hours as part of a concussion, and have not left the airport, will not be charged for isolation.
Despite the Ministry of Health's directive, the chances of many returning from these countries breaking the isolation are high. Although more than a month ago, the previous Knesset plenum approved the isolation law under the technological supervision of a person entering Israel (known as the Electronic Handcuffs Law) - those landing at Ben Gurion Airport, who are required to isolate upon return, continue to be sent without any electronic oversight. The health claims that the procedure for distributing the bracelets at Ben Gurion Airport is expected to take place later this month, but there is no specific deadline.
In addition, the departure of Israeli citizens and residents, with the exception of exceptions, to the seven countries mentioned is prohibited. The ban on departure to these countries will not apply to anyone who operates a connexion flight through these countries, provided that he stays less than 12 hours in the airport area only.
The criteria for the Exceptions Committee, for the purpose of obtaining an exit permit to the above countries, include a humanitarian need or an exceptional essential need, athletes (with the approval of the Director General of the Ministry of Culture and Sports) and official emissaries of national institutions
It is the responsibility of each passenger (Israeli or foreign) to present before boarding an aircraft departing from Israel, for each destination, a recovery certificate or vaccination certificate or a negative PCR test, performed at most 72 hours before the departure time from Israel. In addition, it is the responsibility of each passenger to verify the entry policy for the destination country and to prepare in accordance with its requirements.
