Epoch Times is reporting Israel’s top officials as warning that the Pfizer’s Covid-19 vaccine is ‘significently less’ effective at combating the ‘Delta variant’ of the CCP virus.

The news service quotes Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett as saying: “We do not know exactly to what degree the vaccine helps, but it is significantly less.”

It states that for months Israel has relied heavily on administering Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccine, which uses mRNA technology, and that according to officials, more than 5.7 million Israelis have received at least one dose of the vaccine.

Meanwhile, cases of the virus are on an alarmingly upward spiral in Ireland where the Department of Health has confirmed that there have been 1,179 new cases over the past day.

More than ninety people are hospitalised with the disease, with twenty-two in ICU.

Despite the growing threat, the government has approved the easing of restrictions across hospitality and travel sectors. Thousands are flocking to beaches throughout the State.

There are fears cases of the virus could rocket to thousands of outbreaks daily.

Taoiseach Micheál Martin said at the weekend that the Government was very concerned about the transmissibility of the Delta variant and is also said to have predicted a high volume of cases.
