Health Officials: Israel Will Reach Coronavirus Herd Immunity Within Two Months


Israel will likely achieve herd immunity for coronavirus in the next month or two, top health officials said as the Delta variant continues to rage through the country.

The recent spike in infections coupled with the country’s aggressive booster campaign for the third shot of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine could mean “there is a good chance that in the next month or two, we’ll reach a situation that is very similar to herd immunity,” officials were quoted as saying, according to a report by Kan public broadcaster this week.

Tens of thousands of unvaccinated Israelis – mostly children – will be infected with COVID in the next couple of weeks, the officials added.

Combined with the recipients of the booster shots, officials said, would mean that more than 80 percent of the population will be mostly protected from the disease.
