Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu on Wednesday instructed the Defense Ministry to quarantine all persons entering Israel from abroad in designated hotels (or other installations converted for that purpose) under supervision. The decision is to be implemented immediately, the Prime Minister’s Office said.

Netanyahu also determined that to the extent that Defense Ministry succeeds in supplying test kits, in accordance with the requirements set by the Health Ministry, the carrying out of the tests will be considered in relation to all those returning from abroad.
