Israel starts reopening as nearly half of population receive jabs
Al Jazeera, 22 Feb 2021
Shops, gyms and malls have started reopening in Israel as nearly half of its population has been vaccinated against the coronavirus.
Israel's vaccination drive was one of the world's fastest, with 45 percent of its residents given the Pfizer-BioNTech jab ahead of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's re-election bid in March
Those that have been inoculated get a "Green Pass" app, which allows them to use gyms and go to theatres.
