As I just commented on MS:
https://flywith.virginatlantic.com/gb/en/news/coronavirus.html

Information for customers travelling to Tel Aviv
The Israeli Authorities have advised that from 11th March they will extend their entry restrictions to include travellers from the UK. This means no UK travellers will be able to enter Israel unless they can prove they will be placed in home quarantine for 14 days after their arrival. As a result, we have taken the decision to temporarily suspend our services between London Heathrow and Tel Aviv.

Our last flight to leave London Heathrow will be 11th March 2020

Our last flight to leave Tel Aviv will be 12th March 2020

Flights will resume from London Heathrow on 1 April 2020, and from Tel Aviv 2nd April 2020

For further updates, please continue to monitor our Travel News page

Or for more on your choices when a flight is cancelled visit our Flight Disruptions page.

At the rate things are unfolding, I wouldn't be surprised if all international travel will be suspended within 3 weeks. Domestic travel might be not so far behind.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

If you donít commence travel, you need to speak with the party you booked with. In your case, thatís the OTA.

Booked elal using Qantas points, and in the middle of a trip. Is a special waiver needed to cancel the return and refund points, or can normally cancel in the middle of a trip?

Confirmed:
"About our Israel flights
3/10/2020 by Turkish Airlines

Dear Passengers,

Due to the increase of coronavirus cases seen in Israel, the Israeli government stated that from 9 March 2020 on, all returning Israelis will enter a 14-day home isolation regardless of their country of departure.

According to the decree, foreign tourists along with Israeli citizens will enter isolation during their arrival to Israel. For foreigners this decree will be in effect after approximately three days (72 hours after the evening of 9 March 2020).

Following the decision of the Israeli government, Turkish Airlines will be lowering its daily frequency and will operate 4 flights per day on 11-12 March. Afterwards, flag carrier will operate 2 daily flights to Israel between 13-31 March."

Not so applicable to probably 99% of people on here but Kuwait is now the first country in the world to close down their airport to all flights.

Considering China is doing so much better I do not see that happening any longer.....Especially not domestically in China.

Seems to be unfolding faster than I imagined.
