Similarly three months ago, the infection in Israel was on a global first world and a daily high death rate.
Today, the situation seems quite different, writes the newspaper Berlingske Tidende.
At the time of writing, over 5.3 million out of Israel’s over 9 million inhabitants have been vaccinated, over 830,000 are declared healthy after infection. About 68% of the population has developed antibodies, according to researchers, it is precisely the percentage needed to speak of flock immunity.

According to Professor Eyal Leshem, director of the Sheba Medical Center, flokimmunity is “only explanation” that the infection in the country continues to decline, despite recent months of graduating of society.
“There is a steady fall, even though we have returned to something near normal quality,” says Leshem to BBC.
“It tells us that even though a person is infected, most people he meets when he goes around does not get infected by him.”
The data also shows decreasing infection among all age groups – including children, despite the fact that children under the age of 16 are only vaccinated if they are extraordinary risk of a difficult corona course.
With the exception of few island communities, Israel is world champion in Corona vaccination of its population. But we have an acute lack of vaccines in Europe, Israel has provided effective delivery, logistics, distribution and use of the vaccines.

It is largely Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahus rapid purchase of vaccines in Pfizer, who allowed the country to get started with the vaccine cleaning. Read: What is Israel like the EU and Denmark cannot?
Data shows that Israel’s rapid and efficient vaccine equipment has been crucial for the fight against increasing infection. At the time of writing, the number of positively tested has fallen by 98%. The proportion of severely ill Corona patients has fallen by 93% and the proportion of deaths has fallen by 87%.
The experts indicate that this is due to 85% of all Israeli inhabitants over 16 are vaccinated.
In addition, experts also believe that a contributing factor may be that more children than those who have been tested have been infected and thereby increasing immunity in society significantly.
On difference to Israel, China and New Zealand have broken the source of infection through hermetic shutdowns. The EU has not turned down the infection – neither via decommissioning or vaccine abutments.
Israel can now finally abolish the last Corona restrictions and again send the country’s students to school and the order to use mall ranges in public space is also abolished.

The country’s cultural life, fitness centers, restaurants, cafes, hotels and other are already opened for vaccinated Israelis who can showcase vaccine passports.
However, data shows simultaneously that the effect of the vaccines takes some time to turn through in relation to the spread of infection and requires a high percentage of the inhabitants to be vaccinated.
mid-February was 80% of all Israelis over the age of 60 vaccinated and infection continued extremely high. Data now shows that the vaccine’s EFFT first turns through when a large proportion of the younger population is also vaccinated.
PFIZER CEO, Albert Bourla has announced that a third vaccine appears to be necessary about a year after a person is ready-vaccinated. Annual re-vaccination can also come to talk.
At the time of writing, 6.314 Israelis died of Corona.
Israel has already secured future vaccines:
