Most likely - insist that Israel give its formula to other countries so that they can manufacture the drug.

From the Jerusalem Post - "Israeli scientists: 'In a few weeks, we will have coronavirus vaccine'

https://www.jpost.com/HEALTH-SCIENCE/Israeli-scientists-In-three-weeks-we-will-have-coronavirus-vaccine-619101

Not sure why people get excited about this. Almost every health official saying it's likely that the earliest vaccine will not be released until at least 12-18 months, and that's considered extremely quick. It won't stop the spread in the US right now. You can't simply inject billions of healthy people with a vaccine that hasn't gone through the clinical trials process.

Part of the advantage here is that they "Just happened" to e testing on coronaviruses already.
Just because things turned out a certain way doesn't mean you were right.

Which puts them in the same boat as other researchers who have been doing the same. Clinical trials will take a while even if it's a good vaccine.

Rec'd - 100%. Look at the hashgacha pratis - they were working on a vaccine for a different virus and when Covid-19 showed up they analyzed it and found that it was practically identical to what they were working on.

In Milan it seems that they've closed houses of worship down and are concerned about megila:

What about hotels in Israel as it stands now?

Another 2 deaths reported from the giant petri dish known as the Diamond Princess, raising the total to 6 deaths/705 confirmed cases/34 serious/10 recoveries. This massive real-life lab experiment should shed a lot of insight in the next month or so as to how deadly COVID really is, though the numbers need to be analyzed by each demographic group. So far it ain't looking good :(

Thinking about this a little more, the cruise might be good to study for pure death rates, but it won't account for deaths caused due to overcrowded hospitals/overburdened health system. And given that so far approximately 20% of cases are severe or critical, the CFR will vary greatly depending on a country's ability to treat patients.
