I guess the only remaining issue is vaccine adoption, and over time that'll gradually resolve itself.

And mutations, but you don't seem concerned about that.
I donít believe there are credible indications of likely vaccine evading evolution. The bigger question to me is vaccine wearing off, but Iím optimistic that they will last for head

For years?

Boosters should be a viable solution to immunity wearing off. Even if efficacy drops after x amount of time it doesn't happen to everyone at the same time.

Amazing. First time I've seen it. In two separate of Israel's covid updates today, they didn't add any covid cases. Just added tests which were all negative.

So far 11 cases today and 0.09% positive. Final update in the morning.

On top of the general declining trend, most schools in Israel were closed for the past week, restaurants were closed or empty, and people went out much less. There was some congregating in shelters, but most people have a safe room at home and anyways the contact is usually short.

Last week by the way, was somewhat of a plateau in cases. No decline. Let's see how this week will be.

During the war they suspended the requirement for a child to show a negative test at hotels. Iím not sure if itís back on or not.

More interestingly, is that requirement cancelled altogether after June 1st? My kids have done way too many tests  :)

I donít think there is any final or formal information on the planned changes, but cancelling the Green Pass means people can enter everywhere regardless of vaccination/covid status.

Seemingly, the driving force is to counter the opposition who reinstated Netanyahuís archenemy Shahsa-Bitton as the head of the parliamentary Covid committee and render her position meaningless.

One would think that this implies that kids could go into hotels without negative covid test..

But, hey, it's Israel

Week before was 55 cases.

Great news, but if there are only 14 new cases in the entire country, why are 29k people being tested each day? Are they all traveling internationally, or in jobs that have mandatory testing?

I am applying for application to go to Israel to visit my brother who is an Israeli Citizen. One of the requirements is showing health insurance that covers COVID in Israel. Anyone have any suggestions for this.

Apologies if this is a repost.

Thanks

5-20k people take off and land every day. There are also people with symptoms similar to Covid. There is very little mandatory testing related to job nowadays, pretty sure in Israel it only applies to the non vaccinated and exposed. There are also kids who can't get vaccinated but need a negative test to enter certain places.
