Vaccines against the delta-Covid Variant will not be enough, the Israeli prime minister saidJuly 17, 2021
Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett said today at a meeting on the epidemiological situation with the coronavirus in that country that the protection provided by vaccines against delta-soybeans is “weaker than we expected”, according to Israeli media.
“Anyone who hoped the vaccines would solve the problem on their own would not,” Bennett told members of the government, the National Security Council, the police and the military.
“The delta-strain is spreading all over the world. On the one hand, vaccines are effective against viruses, so we make sure we have enough supplies of vaccines. “But vaccines alone are not enough.”
“I do not know exactly how much the vaccine helps, but it is much weaker than the delta variant. “We hope to see a slowdown in the number of new infections soon, but so far this is not happening, neither here nor in the rest of the world.”
“Our goal is to ensure a normal life, but by adjusting to the pandemic,” he concluded.
At the meeting, it was decided to start an expedited procedure for approving home coronavirus tests. According to local journalists, a senior official of the Ministry of Health said yesterday that a new locking option is not being considered at the moment.
