Ultra-Vaxxed Israel’s Crisis Is a Dire Warning to America

The massive surge of COVID-19 infections in Israel, one of the most vaccinated countries on earth, is pointing to a complicated path ahead for America.

In June, there were several days with zero new COVID infections in Israel. The country launched its national vaccination campaign in December last year and has one of the highest vaccination rates in the world, with 80 percent of citizens above the age of 12 fully inoculated. COVID, most Israelis thought, had been defeated. All restrictions were lifted and Israelis went back to crowded partying and praying in mask-free venues.

Fast forward two months later: Israel reported 9,831 new diagnosed cases on Tuesday, a hairbreadth away from the worst daily figure ever recorded in the country—10,000—at the peak of the third wave. More than 350 people have died of the disease in the first three weeks of August. In a Sunday press conference, the directors of seven public hospitals announced that they could no longer admit any coronavirus patients. With 670 COVID-19 patients requiring critical care, their wards are overflowing and staff are at breaking point.

“I don’t want to frighten you,” coronavirus czar Dr. Salman Zarka told the Israeli parliament this week. “But this is the data. Unfortunately, the numbers don’t lie.”

What happened?

The complex and sobering truth is that no single policy or event brought Israel to this crisis, Hagai Levine, a Hebrew University of Jerusalem professor of epidemiology, told The Daily Beast. A deadly set of circumstances came together to put Israel on the precipice, most of which can be summed up as: “We are still in the midst of a pandemic, and there is no silver bullet.”

“All the vectors have influenced the rise in morbidity,” he said.

But the principal causes of Israel’s current predicament are the dominance of the extremely infectious Delta variant, which was carried into the country by Israelis returning from foreign vacations during the weeks in which Israel dropped all restrictive measures—along with the worrisome decrease in vaccine efficacy after about six months.

Israel vaccinated its population almost exclusively with the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine, which received full FDA approval on Monday and remains the gold standard for the prevention of severe illness due to the coronavirus.

  • Clearly Isreal is learning from Sinkieland and implemented the “open legs” policies ahead of Sinkieland.

    So while countries like China and New Zealand are implementing ZERO C19 policies, Sinkieland will hand-hold-hand with Isreal in implementing their treating the C19 as an endemic policy, i.e. living with the virus.

    Hm… I remember reading about another ultra-vaxxed country also now sibei jialut, anyone can remember which one?

    AND which idiots were saying vaccination prevents “injuries and death”?

  • opposition dude:

    Akan datang as the cinema trailers always say. Since PAP has already gone ahead with letting in pass holders it will be a matter of time before we get another wave. I predict by middle October with the way things are going.

    And of course they will conveniently blame all the remaining unvaccinated ones for the rise in cases and deaths ha ha ha. It has already been proven that even if one is fully vaccinated he can still spread the virus. And both partially vaccinated and unvaccinated have perished from the virus too.

    So this supposed 90%++ vaccine is pretty useless if it starts waning after a short 6 months. Whoever heard of a vaccine that lasts 6 months???

    Tech: Vaccines don’t wane for a long time, only drugs do. So it should have been classified as drugs instead.

  • xoxo:

    Frankly,does this not points to the real level of so-called *efficacy* of the current vaccine$?
    WHY NO ONE IS QUESTIONING?

    Me still humbly think there need to be a Global Co-ordinated Effort led by WHO/UN to research for a SOLID VACCINE to be administered on non-commercially based considerations?

    MONEY IS AVAILABLE from UN MEMBERS.
    LOOK AT tiny SG,we can casually coughed out $100 Billion to grant furlough for no meaningful outcomes?

    A tenth of ALL GOVTS’ FUNDS APPLIED TO GRANT FURLOUGH would have added to a MASSIVE GLOBAL FUND to fund RESEARCH BY WHO-led PROJECT.

    LOOK AT ALL THE PHARMA SHARE PRICE$!
    ALL GONE SHOOTING HIGHER N STILL COVID IS STILL SPREADING LIKE WILD FIRES?

    WHERE HAVE ALL THE WORLD’S GOVTS MONEY GONE?

    TO NAKE MORE N RICHER BILLIONAIRE$???

    STUPID RIGHT?

  • Why are those so-called experts at MTF so quiet nowadays? Aren’t they supposedly the experts in the Covid-19? I don’t recall anyone of them addressing the concerns and negative thingy raised on various media.

    Are all of them on loooong holidays or they have run out of bull to shit?

    When one stupidly believes something and shafts one’s head into the sand, it is very embarrassing to find out that it is false. So better dig deeper into the sand and pray hard hard that the belief will become true.

    The fake vaccines not only did not prevent infection, it also cannot save lives.

    Why blame the unvaccinated for the rise in cases and deaths? Did the unvaccinated travel overseas to be infected and then infect the rest of us? What is the source of local community infection? Why punish the unvaccinated when data shows that the vaccinated is equally able to get infected and carry the same virus load to re-infect others.

    It’s better not to open up until a real covid-19 vaccine is found. Otherwise, we are in for a real mess.

  • Pegasus Deadly Virus:

    Deadliest Phone virus or malware is created by Israel.

    Pegasus. It can take over your whole phone without you knowing just by ringing your phone even if you dont answer the call. It means with your phone number you cannot escape this malware.

    Its used by governments to target their competitors.

    The PAP is hell bent on getting all to vaccinate so naturally they will keep harping on and on that vaccination is shown to be effective in curbing the virus despite the fact that both partially and fully vaccinated people have died. They will simply announce that the numbers are few and that more unvaccinated ones have died over and over.

    That’s the thing about PAP, repeating the same old silly ploy over and over thinking it will result in perhaps 95% of people being vaccinated eventually. They want to make the unvaccinated suffer because to them the unvaccinated are the cause of everything which we all know isn’t true.

    I think what could happen in future is that we won’t need vaccines anymore once medicine is available in pill or liquid form like how we take Panadol or cough medicine. Until that time comes we only have the vaccines to depend on.

  • Israel Reported 39% for Pfizer:

    Efficacy against delta in July. That’s a drop from 54% from two months earlier.

    Lets see in September.

  • Harder Truths:

    It is also a possibility (which has been discussed in this forum prior) that vaccinated people are the source of these new cases. The trial drug may have created a means for the virus to mutate, rather than be destroyed by the body.

  • a nice convenient punching ba:

    //And of course they will conveniently blame all the remaining unvaccinated ones for the rise in cases and deaths ha ha ha.//

    cannot blame the virus as it does not have a human face to punish & kick at ??

    cannot blame another country as the cause is the virus ??

    cannot blame the vaccinated as they are compliance and follow advices to get vaccinated ??

    cannot blame the authorities as they are doing their best to contain the spread ??

    so who is left to blame and point finger at – the weakest minority party left (& can be easily “bullied” with tonnes of powerful resources bearing on them ??), the unvaccinated lor as a nice convenient punching bag when all else fail ???

  • Virus spread:

    The Virus spread is likely from the vaccinated.
    Better look at how to reduce the spread from this group…the real problem.
    Don’t bark at the wrong tree..

  • We are ready:

    As a matter of fact, on a daily basis,other diseases kill far more people than Covid 19.

    Traffic accident, suicide and other accident like snake bit, drowning, murder also claimed far more life than the virus.

    In Singapore, people fully vaccinated stand at 81% of the total population now. For the whole of August, 12 died of the virus and most were very senior in age. Thus, even if one catch the virus now, more than 99% of the time the individual will survive.

    Yes, the ghamen has prepared the people well to live with the virus. A cautious approach is necessary tough and light at the end of the tunnel has been sighted.
