Dr. Anthony Fauci, the Director of the U.S. National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and chief medical advisor to U.S. President Joe Biden, praised Israel’s handling of the coronavirus crisis in an interview with Channel 13 News on Wednesday.

“I often use Israel as the prototype example of what actually goes right [in the battle against the coronavirus],” he said. “I don’t think Israel did everything perfectly – no one does things perfectly – but you had a couple of things in your favor.”

“One, you’re a small country with a small population that is used to pulling together. I think the history of Israel, because of the political circumstances that surround you in the region, you know what it means to stick together as a single unit. Otherwise, you would not have survived as well as you survived.”

Israel’s Health Ministry confirmed only 27 new coronavirus cases on Thursday, increasing the number of active cases to 1,371. There are 87 patients in serious condition, of whom 55 are ventilated. The death toll stands at 6,371.

  1. I like Fauci, but he clearly does not understand Israeli politics or culture (which is not part of his job description). Yes, everyone in Israel is pulling, but usually in 9,000,001 different directions.

  2. I hate fauci, hes has the same agenda as gates…..i do agree with his statement here, but i think his reasoning for saying it is to encourage others to vaccinate like israel did…to encourage population control via corona, not about the public health of the people.

  3. I guess it helped that the politicians listned to the medical experts. While here not all governors listened to him as well as Coumo and faucci did.

  4. Fauxi would love to have the power many in the Israeli government have of forcing people to get the vaccine and keeping the country perpetually under lockdown.

  5. Fauci Shmauci whatever name lets get to the point…Its all from Hashem and this was a gezyreh from him and the sad part is the outcome. What did we learn from all this? Its a week since the Tragedy from Meron and most families mourning got up from Shiva and Parents are looking at empty beds where children will never be there, Almunes are sitting home and wondering where will my bread come from.
    I am NOT talking here about Tshuveh because i have plenty to fix myself . I only want that every one should at least open their heart and wallets and donate to all those Fundme or other charities with the amount they can afford. Lets join the pain of all kehillas, organiztions, who took the burden to be there for those broken families and lets give them a hand with any donation. I gathered all my kids and asked every one to take a One dollar from their Chanukah gelt and chip in. Whatever anyone can give will be feeling their pain and hashem should help us in the zechus of mitzvehs he will send the Goyel Tzedek and bring us all to Yerushelyim…
