Visiting Tel Aviv’s Ichilov Hospital, Health Minister Nitzan Horowitz says that the vast majority of coronavirus patients hospitalized there in serious condition are unvaccinated.

He says that this is also the situation at most other hospitals in Israel.

“Instead of arriving at the hospital in serious condition with high chances of mortality, get vaccinated and protect yourself,” Horowitz says in a video statement.
