In his interview with Ynet studio, Professor Asch expressed concern that a lot of children are now being infected.
Only 11 confirmed infections with the Omicron strain have been identified in Israel so far but the Director General of the Ministry of Health clarifies that, at least for now, he sees no reason to relax the restrictions.
& ldquo; We will have to extend the restrictions until we have more data because at this point we still cannot say with certainty that the vaccine protects against the new strain. ”
“ I hope we will know more in the coming days. Laboratory tests are underway. ”
