Truth : Israel Is Not Currently Facing Dramatic COVID Surge!

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS posted by the infamous Died Suddenly account on X (formerly Twitter), and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Screenshot Was From 2021 NPR Article

Whenever someone posts a screenshot, instead of a link to the article itself, you should be wary.

In this case, Died Suddenly posted a screenshot from an NPR article that was published by Daniel Estrin on August 20, 2021 (link).

That’s more than two years ago. Why would anyone post a screenshot of an old article???

Fact #2 : NPR Article Date Was Edited Out

Interestingly, the screenshot that Died Suddenly posted has a suspicious gap, where the article date was supposed to be.

It appears that the screenshot had the article date deliberately edited out. Now, why would anyone do that???

Fact #3 : Israel Didn’t Vaccinate Enough People

The NPR article explained how Israel was the first country on Earth to fully-vaccinated a majority of its citizens against COVID-19. That said, its “highly-vaccinated” status was only in comparison to the rest of the world.

As the article explained, Israel had only fully-vaccinated slightly over half its population by March 25, 2021; when it reopened its economy, even removing all restrictions in June 2021.

It also pointed out that only 58% of Israel citizens were fully vaccinated (at that time), which experts said isn’t high enough.

Fact #4 : NPR Article Clearly States Vaccination Helps

The NPR article explained how Israel was seeing a surge of new COVID-19 cases in August 2021, despite being highly-vaccinated. Protection from its early vaccinations waned, and coincided with the arrival of the more infectious Delta variant.

But while infection rates went up, the article also explained that “if you get infected, being vaccinated helps”.  It pointed out that the rate of serious COVID-19 amongst unvaccinated people over 60 was 9X higher than the rate of serious COVID-19 in vaccinated people of the same age.

Fact #5 : Israel Does Not Currently Have Any COVID-19 Surge

Just in case you are wondering – Israel is not currently seeing any surge in new COVID-19 cases – dramatic or otherwise. In fact, Israel has recorded low numbers of COVID-19 cases in 2023, as this chart shows.
