Israel is easing the pressure. The country was deconfined on Sunday. A measure made possible by mass vaccination. Almost half of the population received a first dose of the vaccine.
After having received two doses of vaccines, all you have to do is download a green sticker, in the form of a barcode to present at the entrance of the establishments. A quick and efficient solution for Daniel who came to his gym. “I get vaccinated, I connect to the application and I go home! It’s so simple! Life is coming back,” he says.
The swimming pools are also open. Dave had dreamed of it for weeks.
” I’m finally coming back after a very long time staying at home. Like everyone else here. So it’s really magical to be able to come back for a swim, “he says.
To avoid fraud, some people have facial recognition in addition to the green passport. Eyal Fisher, co-founder of Preciate, installed a kiosk at the entrance of a theater. “All you need is to come here, identify yourself and get clearance to enter quickly and safely,” he explains.
A reopening of nearby restaurants
A return to normal life or almost according to Professor Cyrille Cohen, member of the Advisory Council on the vaccine at the Israeli Ministry of Health.
“You can almost speak of a return to normal life. We are in the second phase with the reopening of shops, boutiques and shopping centers. And within two weeks, we plan to reopen our restaurants, our bars, and have all our students return to school. We hope to be in a position that will allow us to reopen all of this. Currently 47% of the population has received at least one dose and more than 30% have received both doses. So we have a very high vaccination rate, ”he says.
Restaurants and bars will remain closed until March 7, as will Tel Aviv airport.
