Israel’s Health Ministry is promoting legislation that would require teachers, transportation workers and salespeople to get vaccinated or take frequent Covid-19 tests as a condition to work, according to Deputy Health Minister Yoav Kisch.

“If you’re facing crowds and you see different people, you’ll have to be in some way protected in order to save other people’s lives,” he said in an interview.
