The health minister of Israel – which has experienced a spike in COVID cases and deaths after becoming one of the most-vaccinated nations in the world – was caught on a hot mic admitting so-called “Green Pass” vaccine passports were not being implemented for scientific reasons.
Unaware his conversation prior to a Cabinet meeting was being broadcast live on Israel’s Channel 12, Nitzan Horowitz told Interior Minister Ayelet Shaked there is no epidemiological justification for the COVID passport, and it is only intended to pressure the unvaccinated to vaccinate.
Horowitz said Sunday, reported Jewish News Syndicate, that Israel should lift the requirement that a Green Pass be presented for entry to outdoor swimming pools as well as restaurants.
“Epidemiologically, it’s true,” that they are not justified, Horowitz told Shaked. “The thing is, I’m telling you, our problem is people who don’t get vaccinated. We need [to influence] them a bit; otherwise, we won’t get out of this [pandemic].”
The health minister acknowledged the vaccine passport system wasn’t being enforced in most venues. (Read more from “Hot Mic: Israeli Official Makes Startling Admission About Vaccine Passports” HERE)
