Corona virus is wreaking havoc all over the world. Corona cases were almost over in many countries, but now cases are increasing rapidly there too. The third wave of corona virus has started in many countries. Israel was the first country in the world to claim exemption from outdoor and indoor masks. A week after this claim, the corona virus has once again started wreaking havoc. The delta variant of Corona is catching people who have taken the vaccine. So far 840,079 people have been corona infected in Israel, while 6,428 people have lost their lives due to the virus.
Vaccination of more than half the population
Israel is one of the countries in the world where more than half of the population has been vaccinated. Israel first removed all kinds of restrictions from people and later allowed them not to wear masks even in crowded places. Now once again the cases have started increasing here. The dangerous delta variant of the corona virus is also rapidly catching people who have taken the vaccine. After this, there is a demand to vaccinate teenagers there as soon as possible.
125 new cases found for the first time since April
The cases of corona in Israel were almost over. Now on Monday, there has been a stir due to the arrival of 125 new cases of corona. Most of the cases are such that have come up in people who have been vaccinated. This is the highest number of new corona patients found in a day since April in a country that has vaccinated half the population. The outbreak of corona virus was at its peak in Israel in January. At that time 10 thousand cases were being registered daily in Israel. But after that the Netanyahu government of that time controlled the virus by rapid vaccination.
Happening to people who have taken the vaccine
Among the new cases that are coming up in Israel, there are also people who have received both doses of the vaccine. According to the Israeli newspaper Haaretz, during the investigation in two schools in Israel, nine teachers who had received the full dose of the vaccine were found corona infected. Israel’s newly elected Prime Minister Naftali Bennett warned of a new outbreak in view of the increase in cases of corona infection. He said that the Delta variant, which once again gripped the country, has come because of the passengers returning from abroad. Therefore, strict investigation will be done at the international airport now.
