Health Ministry infectious diseases official Dr. Tal Brosh predicts most people will end up being exposed to and infected by the coronavirus.
“The question is if the infected person is vaccinated or not. It’s unavoidable that the pandemic will infect the majority of the population. It won’t disappear in another half year,” he tells the Kan public broadcaster.
Brosh, who heads the infectious disease department at Assuta Medical Center in Ashdod, also says he doesn’t see a reason to shutter Ben Gurion Airport, arguing it would distract “from the central problem — morbidity within in the country.”
