Health Ministry Director General Nachman Ash announces that tonight, the list of no-fly “red” countries will be canceled.

This will end Israel’s travel ban on the United States, Britain, United Arab Emirates, Turkey, Switzerland, Ethiopia, Tanzania and Mexico.

Ash predicts daily cases will continue to shatter previous records in the coming days, reaching 30,000 in three days and 50,000 in a week.

He says that alongside the Omicron strain of the coronavirus, the Delta strain is also seeing a resurgence. He estimates that most current serious patients have Delta.
