“ONE WAS VACCINATION, THE OTHER WAS NOT”
Wolfson Medical Center in Holon, Israel, announced that one of the 2 people who died due to the corona virus was an unvaccinated 48-year-old man and had no ailments other than high blood pressure.
His family, on the other hand, stated that they tried to persuade him to get vaccinated and they failed. The other death was stated to be an 86-year-old man who was taken to Rambam Medical Center in Haifa and had completed two previous doses of vaccine against the virus.
In the statement of the Israeli Ministry of Health, it was stated that the entire Israeli population, which is approximately 9.3 million, received almost the first dose of vaccine and 5.2 million received the second dose of vaccine.
