News highlights - Israel Coronavirus updates for January 2021.

The highly contagious mutation of the coronavirus was first detected in the United Kingdom in December, and it continues to spread.  Cases have been reported in parts of Europe, Asia, Africa, Australia, Canada and the Middle East including Israel. Most cases have been linked to travel from Great Britain, where the variant was first detected.  South Africa and Brazil are also reporting a new strain of the coronavirus. As we are all rejoicing over the vaccine and the pace Israel is vaccinating its citizens, the months ahead may be more complex and more perilous to navigate as the variants seem to be  more transmissible, which means it will likely require an even greater effort to keep spreading under control.
