[Ed. – Ah, yes — Operation Warp Speed: the initiative Democrats will assign credit to Joe Biden for.]
Israel could declare the coronavirus pandemic over as early as March 2021, thanks to vaccines produced through President Donald Trump’s Operation Warp Speed.
The report by Channel 13, citing health officials said that with millions of Pfizer and Moderna vaccination doses headed for Israel, the crisis could be over earlier than expected.
According to Health Minister Yuli Edelstein, his ministry was working on solving the logistical challenges posed by the vaccines surrounding transit and storage.
In November both Moderna and Pfizer/BioNTech announced that their vaccines had proven 94.5 percent and 95 percent efficacy, respectively — far better than expected, and a success for the Trump administration’s accelerated vaccine development program.
According to reports, Israel is slated to receive enough Pfizer vaccines for two million people.
On Friday, Israel signed an agreement with Moderna to triple the number of vaccines to six million — i.e. enough for three million Israelis.
