    Almost half of all Israelis have now received Covid-19 vaccines. Thanks to a world-leading inoculation programme, the country is one of the first developed nations to now be rolling back its latest round of restrictions. At the weekend, it introduced its Green Pass scheme: opening up restaurants, cinemas and gyms to anyone who can prove they’ve had both doses of the jab. For more on Israel’s Covid-19 strategy, we speak to Professor Cyrille Cohen, director of the Immunotherapy Lab at Bar-Ilan University. He’s also a member of Israel’s advisory council on vaccines.
