A plane carrying vaccines from Israel has landed in the Honduran capital of Tegucigalpa, the Central American country’s President Juan Orlando Hernandez says.
The vaccines, which Hernandez says will go to frontline workers, were transferred to Honduras as part of a decision by Prime Minister Netanyahu to give vaccine doses to other countries in return for diplomatic backing.
