Officials, however, are taking some caution in welcoming foreigners due to increased concerns about the new form of Coronavirus.
Israel, after a very successful vaccination campaign, has now abolished the mandatory use of masks in homes. This restriction was lifted on Tuesday. However, people will still have to wear masks while in planes and going to the isolation center. People who have not yet received the anti-Covid vaccine will have to use masks in nursing homes and other long-term health facilities.
Israel has vaccinated about 85 percent of its population, after which schools and commercial establishments have been completely opened there. There are only a few dozen under-treatment patients of the corona virus in Israel’s population of more than 9 million.
Tourists have to show vaccination certificate
Officials, however, are taking some caution in welcoming foreigners due to increased concerns about the new nature of the corona virus. Israel hosted the first such group of visitors late last month. On reaching here, all tourists have to show vaccination certificates and they are also screened.
On Sunday, there was a big political change in Israel. Naftali Bennett got a majority by one vote in the vote held after Parliament approved the formation of the government. With this, the 12-year-long tenure of former Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu came to an end. With the absence of one member, the government got 60 votes in favor and the opposition got 59 votes.
Who is Israel’s new PM Naftali Bennett?
Naftali Bennett is an Orthodox Jew and will be the first prime minister of Israel to always wear a kippa (the religious cap of the Jewish people). He lives in Tel Aviv’s Ranna. Bennett started his life in Haifa. He has also given his services to the Israeli army. Naftali Bennett has created such a personality, which is a person with a modern, religious and nationalist ideology.
After serving in the elite Sairat Matkal commando unit, Bennett went to the Hebrew University to study law. In 1999, he founded Kyota, an anti-fraud software company, which he sold to an American company in 2005 for $145 million.
