Israel sees uptick in Covid cases despite world-leading inoculation programme

Israel is experiencing an uptick in new Covid-19 infections despite having vaccinated more of its population than any other country in the world, figures show.

Officials on Wednesday recorded 307 new cases, according to Israel's ministry of health.

Towards the end of April and throughout May, new cases had been relatively low - often fewer than 100 - but there has been a slight increase in recent days, raising fears of a surge in infections.
