The Israeli “Kan” channel reported that two doctors had been infected with the Corona virus, and one of them was suspected of being infected with the “Omicron” mutant, noting that both had received 3 doses of the anti-Covid-19 vaccine.
“Kan” said, “A doctor from Tel Hashomer Hospital was infected with Corona, who was infected by a cardiologist, suspected of being infected with the Omicron mutant, both of whom received 3 doses of the Corona vaccine.”
Yesterday evening, Sunday, the Israeli Ministry of Health announced the registration of the second infection with the African “Omicron” mutant, for a female citizen who recently returned from South Africa.
Meanwhile, the Israeli Cabinet approved the intervention of the Shin Bet security service to track people infected with the “Omicron” mutation, to ensure their compliance with the quarantine.
The Israeli government had decided earlier to close the borders to foreigners because of the new “Omicron” strain. This ban on entry for foreigners will apply for a period of two weeks from all countries, except for cases approved by the Exceptions Committee.
It is noteworthy that the new Corona strain “B.1.1.529”, which was called “Omicron”, was first discovered in Botswana, South Africa and Hong Kong, and it is assumed that it could become the most dangerous alternative in terms of infection.
