On Sunday, parts of cultural life in Israel will reopen. Those who have been vaccinated against corona can now go to concerts, while others have to wait.
A so-called green passport now divides the Israeli population in two.
People receive the passport one week after they have been vaccinated or if they have recovered from the coronavirus.
From Sunday, those who have such a passport will have access to gyms, cultural events, swimming pools, hotels, and synagogues, the newspaper Jerusalem Post writes.
From March, they will also have access to restaurants and bars.
“This is the first step towards an almost normal life,” Minister of Health Yuli Edelstein, who has previously called it a moral duty to be vaccinated, noted.
According to the Jerusalem Post, Israel is the country that has spent the longest time in lockdown. But it is also the country that has come the furthest in vaccinating the population.
Almost half of the 9 million inhabitants have been vaccinated.
