Iran In COVID Trouble
By Micah Halpern

Tuesday May 4, 2021
I've Been Thinking:

Iran has purchased 60 million Sputnik V COVD vaccines from Russia. The Sputnik V is a two-dose vaccine.

60 million vaccines, at two doses each, means that Iran purchased enough vaccine for 30 million people. Sounds like good news - except that Iran has a population of 84 million.

Iran is in total COVID lockdown. Almost the entire country, 85% of the cities which comes to 250 cities, are in Red or Orange zones.

Thus far, only 100,000 people in Iran have been vaccinated.

Making matters worse is that the Sputnik V vaccine is not expected to reach Iran until the end of 2021. are only expecting the vaccines by years end.
The situation is dire.

Iran is living a COVID nightmare. The country is on the precipice. At this rate, millions of Iranians will die from COVID.

Biden Meets Mossad Chief
By Micah Halpern

Monday May 3, 2021
I've Been Thinking:

US President Joe Biden met with Yossi Cohen, the head of the Mossad, Israelís intelligence agency. They met one-on-one in the Oval Office.

The president of the United States receives a daily briefing on intel threats throughout the world. But this meeting was not a simple intel briefing.
Cohen was sent to Washington as a direct emissary of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. And immediately after leaving the meeting, Cohen called and briefed his prime minister.

The topic of the meeting was Iran.

Israel is not happy with the on-going Iranian negotiations. The United States is not happy with Israelís moves and counter moves against Iran.

Relations and interactions between Jerusalem and DC are still positive. The United States and Israel are working together - even when they disagree.

COVID in Israel Almost Gone
By Micah Halpern

Sunday May 2, 2021
I've Been Thinking:

As of the first week in May, Israel had a COVID positivity rate 0.1 percent. In real numbers that means that of the 9,236 people tested for COVID, only 13 people were positive.

There were 62 Israelis on ventilators, 102 hospitalized and two deaths.

That brought the entire fatality total in Israel to 6,365.

This was very good news.

Israel is still restricting entrance to the country, but progress on that front is being made. People entering from high COVID countries like India are put in quarantine hotels for 14 days and then tested.

Slow and cautious. Thatís how Israel is managing the pandemic.

Iran Sees Lift of Sanctions
By Micah Halpern

Saturday May 1, 2021
I've Been Thinking:

Iranian media is reporting that their negotiations with the P-5+1 are going very well.

Their media is reporting that the talks in Vienna will lead to the lifting of sanctions on oil, banks, individuals and institutions.

"Sanctions ... on Iran's energy sector, which include oil and gas, or those on the automotive industry, financial, banking and port sanctions, all should be lifted based on agreements reached so far," Deputy Foreign Minister Abbas Araqchi was quoted telling Iranian state media.

Washington, on the other hand, is playing down any progress.
One day soon, we should know the truth about these negotiations.
