Israel Lauded For Handling Covid-19 Pandemic; Patients Show 100% Recovery: Reports



Israel was recently ranked as the safest place in the world at a time when the entire world has been hit by the deadly pandemic according to the latest research reported by Deep Knowledge Ventures published by Nikkei Asian Review.

How India Is Winning Hearts, Minds & Money Via A Simple Anti-Malarial Drug?

Earning 632.32 points out of 700, the research says Israel has benefitted from its small territory, highly-advanced medical system, savvy use of technology and a powerful army.

According to a widely read report published by JPost, six critically ill Covid-19 patients in Israel who are deemed high-risk for mortality have been successfully treated with Pluristem’s placenta-based cell-therapy product and survived.

According to reports, the patients were experiencing acute respiratory failure and inflammatory complications associated with coronavirus. Four of the patients also exhibited the failure of other organs including cardiovascular and kidney.

Not only have all the patients sustained and doing better, according to Pluristem, but four of them have shown improvement in respiratory parameters and three of them could b soon removed from ventilators. Furthermore, two of the patients with prior medical conditions are showing a clinical recovery in addition to the respiratory improvement.

“We are pleased with this initial outcome of the compassionate use program and committed to harnessing PLX cells for the benefit of patients and healthcare systems,” said Pluristem CEO and president Yaky Yanay. “Pluristem is dedicated to using its competitive advantages in large-scale manufacturing to potentially deliver PLX cells to a large number of patients in significant need.”

Ventilators Could Be Doing More Harm Than Good As US Changes COVID-19 Strategy

Pluristem’s PLX cells are “allogeneic mesenchymal-like cells that have immunomodulatory properties,” meaning they induce the immune system’s natural regulatory T cells and M2 macrophages, the company claims. The outcome could be the repeal of dangerous overactivation of the immune system. This would likely reduce the fatal symptoms of pneumonia and pneumonitis.

Meanwhile, Israel PM — Benjamin Netanyahu sketched an exit strategy on Thursday night, proposing how Israel will get back towards normalcy. Under the scheme, businesses including in a pilot designed by the Finance Ministry will be slowly allowed to open, according to the Ministry of Health guidelines.

Israel The Best, India Surprisingly ‘Very Good’ For Handling Covid-19 Pandemic: Research

Israelis will also be able to venture 500 meters away from their homes, up from 100 meters at present, while students in special education that benefit from private classes will be able to recommence school. This, however, confirms that kindergartens, schools and retail stores will not be allowed to reopen.

The decision will be brought to the government’s approval on Saturday night, April 18, although Netanyahu said the plan could be modified.
