We donâ€™t see how what Israel is doing here is much different from New York Cityâ€™s response to the coronavirus. New Yorkers were required to present proof of vaccination to attend concerts or sporting events â€¦ but out-of-town performers and athletes were exempt from the vaccine mandate, because science.
Now Newsweek is reporting that, due to the Omicron variant of COVID-19, Israel is banning foreign travelers, with the exception of contestants for the Miss Universe Pageant, which is scheduled in December. Newsweekâ€™s Jack Dutton seems to think heâ€™s caught Israel in a gotcha, and Dr. Eli David agrees.
Due to the new variant, Israel bans entry for all foreigners, expect participants in Miss Universe pageant.
