Six Million Covid Testing Kits Arriving in Israel


Some 2.5 million antigen testing kits were delivered to Israel on Tuesday, the Prime Minister’s Office said.

The kits, purchased by the Health Ministry Control Center, will be used to test pupils in the education system in order to implement the green classrooms plan and enable the continuation of routine life for parents, pupils and the Israeli economy, the PMO said.

An additional 4.7 million kits are scheduled to arrive on Wednesday.

Prime Minister Bennett: “We are doing everything to keep the economy open, the education system functioning, and to maintain routine life. With the millions of tests that we are bringing to the country – it is possible. With correct, close and flexible management, we will defeat the Delta strain.”
