Israel’s Military Says it Has Reached Herd Immunity to COVID
The Israeli military declared that it has reached herd immunity to COVID-19 after 80% of its personnel had either been vaccinated, had the disease, or both.
The announcement makes the Israel Defense Forces perhaps the first military in the world to achieve immunity to the disease.
“Things look a lot more like they did a year ago,” Brig. Gen. Dr. Alon Glasberg, the IDF’s chief medical officer, told reporters Thursday. “It seemed impossible, but now it’s here.”
While herd immunity will allow the military to resume normal operations, soldiers will still have to wear masks and social distance for now. (INN / VFI News)
