Data shows Israel leading world in COVID vaccination drive

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu tweets a chart from Our World In Data showing Israel to be the current world leader in administering COVID-19 vaccines to its population, surpassing the UK.

“Tremendous success!” he tweets, alongside the chart showing Israel at the top of the list (0.83 per 100 people). Israel began its drive on Sunday, while Britain started on December 8.

The data for the UK and the US, however, was last updated on Monday, while Israel’s appears to be up-to-date.
