Israel sets up rapid COVID test stations nationwide – The Times of Israel

Israel has set up rapid coronavirus testing stations across the country, the Magen David Adom (MDA) emergency service says, as the government tries to stave off another pandemic lockdown.
“Following a request from the Ministry of Health, Magen David Adom on Sunday opened 120 rapid detection stations,” an MDA statement says.
The testing centers are aimed at the non-vaccinate who need a health pass to enter certain venues. Results are received in 15 minutes.
Since this morning, unvaccinated people must present a negative COVID-19 test less than 24 hours old, and this rule will be extended to children under 12 from August 20.
As The Times of Israel’s environment reporter, I try to convey the facts and science behind climate change and environmental degradation, to explain – and critique – the official policies affecting our future, and to describe Israeli technologies that can form part of the solution.
I am passionate about the natural world and disheartened by the dismal lack of awareness to environmental issues shown by most of the public and politicians in Israel.
I’m proud to be doing my part to keep Times of Israel readers properly informed about this vital subject – which can and does effect policy change.
