Israeli vaccine chief Cyrille Cohen: "We have made mistakes" (video & article)

Jan 18, 2022: In a wide-ranging and forthright interview with Freddie Sayers, Professor Cyrille Cohen, head of Immunology at Bar Ilan University and a member of the advisory committee for vaccines for the Israeli Government said:

- "The Green Pass / vaccine passport concept was no longer relevant in the Omicron era and should be phased out"

- Professor Cohen and his colleagues were surprised and disappointed that the vaccines did not prevent transmission, as they had originally hoped

- The biggest mistake of the pandemic in Israel was closing schools and education and Cohen apologized for that

- Widespread infection is now an inevitable part of future immunity - otherwise known as herd immunity

- Omicron has accelerated the pandemic into the endemic phase, in which Covid will be “like the common flu”
