Three Israelis under the age of 18 passed away of COVID this month.

There are over 6,000 confirmed COVID carriers in Bnei Brak, including over 2,000 children.

Another 58 fatalities were confirmed on Motzei Shabbos, raising the death toll to 8,657.

  1. With Israel being the only country giving the vaccine to young children, I don’t think you have to be a genius to note the correlation. I’m in the UK and virtually no kids I know have taken the vaccine, and there’s no Covid outbreaks amongst children of any age group either, let alone fatalities.

  2. Funny how the headlines in Israel sound like 2020
    No mention of vaccines , just increasing deaths and cases
    Almost as if the vaccines don’t work

  3. The teen had serious underlying illnesses and his medical situation deteriorated after contracting COVID, Yisrael Hayom reported.

    that should be in the headline, he’s what you write

    Teen with serious underlying illness dies with COVID
