JERUSALEM - Concerns of a widening threat from coronavirus spiked just as millions of Israelis are preparing to gather at polling places for national elections next week, following reports that a group of South Koreans who had visited some of the countrys most popular religious and tourist spots tested positive for the infection.
Dozens of school students who may have been in proximity to the South Korean tourists were directed to stay in home-based quarantine for two weeks, as were hotel housekeepers and employees of Masada, Tel Ber Sheeva and other national parks. Officials, who had previously expressed cautious optimism that Israel could avoid significant risks from the global epidemic, immediately increased restrictions on those entering the country.
Non-Israeli travelers from South Korea and Japan have been barred from entering the country, according to local media reports, and Israelis arriving from multiple Asian countries face two-weeks of mandatory quarantine. Officials reported added South Korea and Japan to that list, which previously had included China, Hong Kong, Thailand, Singapore and Macao.
Officials from multiple agencies scrambled to address the sudden increase in risk. A Health Ministry official released the itinerary of the South Korean group at a hastily called news conference Saturday night, beseeching anyone who may have been within six feet of the group for at least 15 minutes to isolate themselves for two weeks. As many as 200 people reportedly entered quarantine based on the criteria.
Others who may have overlapped with the group from a greater distance were advised to monitor themselves for fever or other symptoms of covid-19 infection.

I would not put it past the groups that surround Israel to use this a weapon. PLO or their ilk.
LOL...just one week ago the media was scolding non-Asians for “racism” for daring to be cautious around Asians for fear of the virus.
Election Day is Monday March 2. Polls in Israel close at 10:00 pm.
This is the biggest hoax scam on the face of this earth..sorry folks I just can’t drink the kool-Aid ..too many suspicious acts coming from China! To sacrifice a few hundred thousand people is a drop in the bucket for China’s 4 billion people! Something just doesn’t seem right! It just stinks to high heaven it really really does! The biggest red flag that pops up in the air is why are they not letting any American CDC people in the country to help them? Folks SOMETHING STINKS!!
There are thousands of Israelis in China. Groups in most major cities. Eventually, theyll have to travel.
I’ve thought the same things.
I forgot to add that my first thought was population control.
Bring Out Your Dead
Post to me or FReep mail to be on/off the Bring Out Your Dead ping list.
The purpose of the Bring Out Your Dead ping list (formerly the Ebola ping list) is very early warning of emerging pandemics, as such it has a high false positive rate.
So far the false positive rate is 100%.
At some point we may well have a high mortality pandemic, and likely as not the Bring Out Your Dead threads will miss the beginning entirely.
*sigh* Such is life, and death...
If a quarantine saves just one child's life, it's worth it.
Media was also saying it was under control. Nothing to fear. Conspiracy theory to suggest otherwise.
Today its: PANIC!
AND all of sudden Italy is claiming the coronavirus has infected a few folks with 3 deaths already reported BUT at the same time Italy just announced some type of deal with China...and don’t forget that Iran too has claimed the coronavirus has made shore....funny, can you say payback for the murder of somalimi(sp?). China and Iran are good friends!! Just waiting on Russia to announce some death too..or maybe they already did and I missed it.
I’d say the biggest red flag is China locking down nearly 760 MILLION of their population over a current death count of less than 15 THOUSAND, assuming China isn’t already low balling the death count.
