Health Ministry Director-General Nachman Ash issues a fresh plea for Israelis to avoid traveling overseas for their summer vacations, noting coronavirus cases are rising in numerous countries.

“It’s not the time to fly abroad,” Ash says in a media briefing.

He also says he expects the number of new infections to continue rising, and that he’ll push the government to further extend the “Green Pass” to additional venues and events beyond those covered under the new “Revelry Pass.”
