This last year, since the beginning of March 2020, was very hard on us here in Israel and on the entire world, especially in the field of tourism, and we all want to know when is this going to end? Is there any developments with issues related to Covid-19?
Since the worlds started using vaccines from different sources, the hope of the entire world is that this will enable us all to resume our normal life again, but there are big differences between countries around the world as to how fast they vaccine their people.
Israel is on the leading edge of the vaccination process world wide. Here is an announcement from the Israel Ministry of Tourism office about that:
Israel has now administered 5.3 million doses of the COVID-19 vaccine which is more than 60% of its population, 30% if the people have already received the second shot.
The recent data shows that among those who have been vaccinated, infection rates have dropped significantly which means the vaccination campaign is working and Israel could flatten the infection curb soon. We are tracking the developments closely.
On top of that, great news were received from one of the biggest hospitals in Israel.
