Actress hospitalized with COVID rues declining the vaccine

Actress Irit Kaplan, 48, has been hospitalized with COVID-19, according to Ichilov Medical Center.

From her hospital bed, she expresses regret for declining the vaccine over fears it would exacerbate her preexisting autoimmune condition.

“I feel like I’m dying, it’s hard for me to breathe, I’m losing strength, it’s real suffering,” she says, urging all Israelis to get immunized against the “cursed disease.”

According to the hospital, Kaplan is in serious condition.
