With such a high vaccination rate one would expect that Covid would have been tamed in that country. After all, we were told that vaccines were the way to end the pandemic and with the initial reports of Pfizer being up to 98 percent effective, Israel should have been in an excellent position today.
The reality on the ground, however, is a complete opposite of what one would expect.
Israel, one of the world's most vaccinated nations, is having its worst numbers since the beginning of the pandemic.
Here is a quote from a recent report by CNBC News titled "Israel doubles down on booster shots as daily Covid cases set new record."
"Covid-19 cases in Israel have been rising sharply since July despite the high vaccination rate. New daily cases in the country reached an all-time high of 12,113 on August 24, surpassing the January peak of 11,934."
