The head of the Israeli Public Health Service, Dr. Sharon Elroy-Price, said that the first data on the effectiveness of the vaccine against the new Omicron coronavirus strain should appear today during the day. This is reported by The Jerusalem Post.
“Our greatest concern is the very rapid spread of this variant in South Africa. Judging by what is known, the vaccinated have no serious symptoms, but so far this is preliminary information, '' Elroy-Price said.
As a reminder, discussions are ongoing in Israel about whether it is possible to use Shabak technology for tracking those infected with the new strain.
