The current wave of coronavirus cases is receding in Israel. This statement was made by Prime Minister Yair Lapid during a government meeting on Sunday. “The current wave of infections is receding. There are currently 370 seriously ill patients in hospitals. Vaccines are available across the country and we hope to have a vaccine for the Omicron variant by winter,” he said. Regarding the monkeypox outbreak, Lapid noted that Health Minister Nitzan Horowitz had been preparing for weeks to combat the virus and had taken steps to locate patients, prevent infection and treat them. “To date, 105 cases have been identified in Israel. The Ministry will continue to monitor the information that has been collected around the world about the disease and is in contact with the health authorities of all countries. 10,000 doses of the vaccine have been purchased and another 5,000 should arrive this week. Upon the arrival of vaccines, health insurance funds will begin to vaccinate risk groups and patients,” he added.
