As COVID-19 cases spike, Israel leads world in vaccine distribution

For the past week, Israel has been vaccinating about 1.5 percent of its population daily — roughly 150,000 people per day — making it a world leader in vaccinating against COVID-19.

New cases have surged to a three-month high, but health authorities have still managed to vaccinate about 50 percent of the country’s high-risk population. Israeli Health Minister Yuli Edelstein said in a press conference that the entire Israeli population could be vaccinated as soon as April.

“Within a time period of two to three months, we’ll be able to vaccinate the entire population that can be vaccinated,” Edelstein said.
