Israel has urged its citizens to reconsider any foreign travel at all in order to contain the coronavirus outbreak.

The warning from Israel’s health ministry is the strictest advice that any country has yet issued about international travel.

Israelis should avoid international conferences and ‘consider the necessity of travelling abroad in general’, the ministry said.

‘The assessment is that there is a high probability the disease has already spread to other regions of Europe and many other places in the world,’ officials say.

The ministry had already instructed Israelis returning from Japan, Hong Kong, Macau, Singapore, Thailand and South Korea to go into isolation at home for 14 days.

Israeli first responders were on high alert yesterday at a coronavirus nerve centre.

A designated hotline launched on Saturday has been fielding around 6,500 calls a day, according to the Magon David Adom emergency services.
