Recently, the Israeli Ministry of Health announced that more than 72,000 people had tested positive for COVID-19 (CCP virus), the largest increase in the number of infections in the country since the outbreak. And it’s worth noting that Israel has the highest COVID-19 vaccination rate in the world.

On January 19, the Israeli Ministry of Health issued a statement saying that the total number of COVID-19 (CCP virus) active cases in the country rose to nearly 400,000, of which 533 are currently hospitalized in critical condition.

According to data on January 20, Israel, a country where nearly half of its citizens received 3 shots of the COVID-19 vaccine and has the highest vaccination rate in the world, is leading the world in the number of new daily cases.

According to the Times of Israel, Eran Segal, a biologist at the Weizmann Institute of Science, confirmed the data. He explained that after comparing the seven-day average infection data for each country, Israel tops the list in terms of the number of infections.

The Omicron variant has proven to be better at evading the COVID-19 vaccine than earlier CCP virus strains, with even higher infection rates among vaccinated populations, and in recent weeks it has infected millions of vaccinated people around the world.
