The Corona projector commented on the decline in serious illness and the decline in the fourth wave of the Corona epidemic, warning: "We have not yet left" • He said there is also room for optimism:

Prof. Salman Zarka, Corona's project manager, issued an optimistic statement to the media today (Monday) regarding the Corona epidemic:

"We are following the morbidity trends and are very optimistic. In two weeks, the serious illness in the hospitals will also go down, but on the other hand, it is important to say: we have not yet left.

"The virus is circulating among us, and we must be careful and take care of ourselves. The way is to keep the guidelines, and get the vaccine. Whether first and second dose, or third. We have clearly proven that people with two doses, after half a year - are not protected. The whole world is learning. "Both the FDA and the European Medicines Agency, which has decided to vaccinate her with the third dose after six months.

Regarding the green class pilot, he said: "We can allow class to be taught - not isolated. The first thing we want to take care of is the health of the children. It is true that we want the children to be able to study all year, and the parents to go to work.

"The children will be able to learn frontally. Next week we will be able to decide how true the outline is for the benefit of the children and parents. A routine without harming health. "

Regarding antigen testing, he said: "There are enough antigen kits. Under the guidance of the Prime Minister we have purchased millions of kits.

Whenever a child is discovered who puts the school in the green classroom outline, there will be a corona trustee who will hand out the tests to the children.

In the kindergartens, we will distribute the tests to the emergency warehouse of the local authorities, who will distribute the tests to the kindergartens and parents as part of the green kindergarten, which we are referring to next week.

Before that, as stated, we will finish the pilot - and it seems that there is no excess morbidity. "

Regarding the encouragement of vaccinations, he said: "We are in constant dialogue with the public. I sincerely hope that the Pike News is behind us, because we see the results. We will bring the vaccine to the door and to the neighborhood in 12 cities. "The school and the various localities, and overnight mobility, in order to make vaccines accessible. 3.7 million people received the third dose - and they are not wrong."

On the Astraznica vaccine, he said: "The vaccine is already in the country, and in the coming days we will transfer it to the HMOs. Our guideline is that the doctor at the HMO will decide on the specific need for vaccines. "A third dose of Moderna or Pfizer. They will be able to defend themselves by getting an Astraznica vaccine."

Zarqa also answered the question of why children go to school, but are not allowed to go out in the afternoon due to isolation: “After summarizing the pilot next week, we will allow children to go out in the afternoon, and meet - but not go to big events or weddings.

In order to maintain public health, it would not be right for them to roam free within the community.

Sensitive people should be kept, not endangered.

After we summarize the pilot, we will allow the children to have more activities. "

Regarding the policy of leaving the fourth wave, he said: "We will do it slowly and carefully. Today restaurants outside are without a green label. In other places, and especially closed places - it will take more time. We want to keep people and prevent the risk of infection. "As far as optimism is concerned about leaving the fourth wave, we will recommend further easing. At the moment, the cabinet is not scheduled to meet, and that is not the issue."

Regarding the question of the long-term use of the green mark, he said: "The abolition of the green mark is not on the table. The question is in which places entry without a green mark is allowed. For example, in restaurants outside - but without gatherings, in the purple mark format.

"The green character will be part of our life routine. We learned from the previous wave that it is not right to get out of the wave fast, especially when the rest of the world has a not-so-simple illness. We will have to be careful not to get a fifth wave."
