Researchers at the Hebrew University said Israel should contain the Omicron strain of coronavirus for as long as possible.
This is stated in a report released 9 December.
According to experts, the fifth wave of morbidity in Israel has already begun. Scientists said there was an apparent rise in the number of infections.
A new South African strain entered Israel last week. For the first time since the end of the fourth wave in the country, the coronavirus began to spread among all age and social groups.
Experts are not yet sure what exactly Omicron is the reason for the growth of all indicators, because only 20 cases of infection have been confirmed in the Jewish State so far.
The reasons may include decreased immunity, morbidity among children, etc. about the need for a fourth dose of vaccine, which will be adapted to the new strain.
