Authorities announced on Wednesday (August 11) that Israel had introduced a health pass for children over the age of three as part of new restrictions on the fight against Kovid-19.

As pollution increased in the coming weeks due to the proliferation of the Delta variant, the Hebrew state re-established the Health Pass for Adults and Children aged 12 and over on July 29th. Called “Badgewort”The latter allows people who have been completely vaccinated with the Covid-19 Cure or Negative Test to access certain areas. On Wednesday, the Israeli government extended the measures for children between the ages of 3 and 12.

Israel, trying to avoid further restrictions, set up rapid antigen testing stations across the country on Sunday, which was carried out by Magan David Adam (MDA) emergency service, making quarantine mandatory for people returning from most countries around the world, whether vaccinated or not. Screening at these stations costs 52 shekels (approximately 17 euros) and allows you to obtain a 24-hour valid health pass from the Ministry of Health.

Israel, a country with a population of nine million, was one of the first countries to launch a major vaccination campaign in December, thanks to a deal with pharmaceutical giant Pfizer. The campaign was able to reduce the number of cases, but the pollution increased again in recent weeks as the more contagious Delta spread.
