Arriving from London, Barak goes to quarantine at home as others sent to hotels

Former prime minister Ehud Barak was allowed to return to his home after stepping off a flight from London Tuesday night, while dozens of other passengers were forced to go to so-called coronavirus hotels for quarantine under observation, due to the new, more infectious UK strain of the virus.

Barak and the Health Ministry said the arrangement was necessary due to Barak’s security needs. They said he will isolate at his home and be tested as required.
