Five Israeli children hospitalized, one in serious condition, as experts warn that reopening schools will cause spike in COVID infection among kids too young to be vaccinated

Israeli hospitals are being asked to prepare for an increase in coronavirus infection among children as Israel exits lockdown and schools reopen. Children under the age of 16 are not being vaccinated at this stage.

On Sunday, the head of the general medicine division at the Health Ministry, Dr. Sigal Liverant Taub, wrote a letter to hospital administrators urging them to adjust their infrastructure to suit children, and to prepare their daily medical teams to treat young people by February 25.
