Lazarev and Shalom Off Kiev Card

As Israel attempts to prevent the new variant of covid-19 from entering its borders, Ben Gurion airport will remained closed until at least February 20 according to The Times of Israel. Igor Lazarev and Yotham Shalom, both based in Israel, were scheduled to fight on Saturday in Kiev, Ukraine.

According to Tony Milch, Gloves and Doves founder who has worked with both Lazarev and Shalom and is a friend of Shalom's father, the two Israelis won't be able to fight on the Kiev card due to Israel's travel restrictions and the airport's closure.

While the seven-day average of new covid-19 cases in Israel is somewhat down from its peak of over 8,000 in mid-January, the seven-day average is still over 6,000, higher than at any point in 2020.
