Bibi Says Pandemic Will End in Israel by Passover


Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu announced that major purchases of vaccines have been made and Israel will be the first country to vaccinate its entire population by the end of March.

The Times of Israel reports Netanyahu saying that millions of new doses of the vaccine have been purchased from Pfizer.

“The agreement that I have made with Pfizer will enable us to vaccinate all citizens of Israel over the age of 16 by the end of March and perhaps even earlier,” he said, “meaning that we will vaccinate the entire relevant population and everyone who wants to will be able to be vaccinated.”

Netanyahu also said that Israel will provide Pfizer with extensive data on the vaccine’s effectiveness.

“We can do this because our health system is among the most advanced in the world, truly a light unto the nations,” Netanyahu stated.

He added that he believes Israel will be back to normal by the Passover holiday.

“When we ask why is this night different, the answer will be: Everything has changed,” the prime minister asserted.
