The coronavirus pandemic have taken the world by storm. Every corner of the world has been impacted by it.

This pandemic has led to millions of infections all over the world and hundreds of thousands of deaths. As a result, many people are wondering what this means for the future and what is going to happen next. In Israel, the pandemic is still alive and well. Even though there are many people who believe the pandemic is in the rearview mirror, this is simply not the case. The pandemic is going to be with us until we had a vaccine, which might not be until 2021.

Therefore, it is important to take a closer look at how this pandemic has impacted Israel. At first, Israel did very well with the pandemic. They were one of the first countries to shut everything down and close its borders to travelers.

At the same time, Israel did make a few mistakes that have contributed to serious issues. First, Israel declared victory over the pandemic when this was simply not the case. It was true that their case transmission rates were relatively low; however, the virus was still alive and well. Second, Israel decided to open everything back up at once. This is even included schools. Therefore, the results were relatively predictable. The pandemic exploded in Israel and Israel now has one of the highest rates of infection in the world.

In addition, it is impossible to ignore the economic fallout of the pandemic as well. Without a doubt, the biggest industry in Israel is technology. Unfortunately, this industry is suffering like many others.

One of the industries in Israel that has been hit the hardest is hospitality. tourism has virtually ground to a halt as numerous countries have decided to close their borders in an effort to limit the spread of the virus. In addition, there are numerous small businesses in Israel that are suffering as well. Many of these businesses suffered when a lockdown was instituted the first time. Sadly, it looks like another lockdown is on the horizon. There is no telling how long this lockdown is going to last. Therefore, many people are wondering if they are ever going to be able to open the doors of their businesses again.

With all of this in mind, it is important for everyone to remember that the only way we are going to come out of this pandemic safely on the other side is if we stick together. Even though there are many people who are very upset that another lockdown might be coming, the reality is that lives are far more important. Therefore, everyone has to listen to health experts when it comes to the pandemic. By taking measures to limit the spread now, it is possible for everyone to get back on track sooner rather than later. Then, everyone will be able to receive a vaccine, which will truly put the pandemic behind us.
