Israel will “become the first country to emerge from the crown of the crisis,” Prime Minister Netanyahu said, reports the Guardian.
“I am two millionth,” read a sign held by 22-year-old Margaret Alsoso as she received her first dose of the vaccine in the town of Ramallah near Tel Aviv.
The Prime Minister is the first Israeli to be vaccinated on December 19, when that country officially launched an immunization campaign against the corona virus.
In early January, authorities announced that two million people would receive the kovid-19 vaccine in two doses by the end of the month.
To date, 150,000 people have received their two doses.
But while Israel is making aggressive progress with vaccination, it is also witnessing a pandemic with about 9,000 cases of coronavirus being registered daily, the British paper adds.
The country, which is currently in its third national blockade, has recorded more than 523,000 cases, including about 3,850 deaths, according to the Israeli Ministry of Health.
Amnesty International called on Israel to provide vaccines against the coronavirus to Palestinians in the occupied West Bank and Gaza, emphasizing that the Jewish state is obliged to do so under international law, reminds the “Guardian”.
