ALBAWABA - The Covid-19 virus is back in Israel ravaging patients to the hilt. Its been creeping up slowly and this week it registered a huge spiral with 70 percent among seriously ill patients.
Israel was the first country on Earth to fully vaccinate a majority of its citizens against COVID-19 - But Now Israel sees 70% spike in number of seriously ill COVID patients within a weekhttps://t.co/B2noVnRsFO— John Moss (@JohnBertramMoss) June 28, 2022
On Sunday, 11,438 people tested positive for coronavirus, and 68,000 tested positive over the past seven days, the Health Ministry reported Monday. At last count, 53,828 people had an active infection, most of them with the BA5 subtype of the Omicron variant according to The Jerusalem Post.
One wonders how worse the figures could have been if Israel hadn't vaccinated the majority of its population very early on, in fact right after vaccines became available in the mid-2021.
"Immune system expert" Prof. Cyrille Cohen wants to “actively encourage herd immunity among the vulnerable and older population” by injecting the last few people in the country who still have true immunity with a non-sterilising "vaccine". 🤦🏻♂️https://t.co/nFpqxOR3PG— New World Outlaw (@tinfoilskull) June 29, 2022
Although the daily infection figures are high the spike seems to be among seriously ill patients.
With the new figures Israel doctors have been calling for the vaccinations of the rest of the population to establish the concept of the herd immunity.
The figures and opinion have been going viral on social:

Nobody knows why the spikes are rising despite the vaccines and will likely continue to search for the reasons especially if the numbers remain high which also means the viral infection remain in the world.
