Who will win the race to find a vaccine for the Coronavirus? Israel is absolutely part of the race. This should surprise nobody as Israel has been on the cutting edge of so many major health developments in the last few decades.
Whoever finds the cure will undoubtedly save the lives of tens of thousands, if not hundreds of thousands of people. For that reason, there is no question that Israeli scientists are driven to better the world – that is the main reason that people choose the field of science.
But Israeli scientists are not only driven to save the world. They are often driven by personal stories that drove them to choose their field. For example, the bio-technology field is filled with Israeli scientists who are driven to help their comrades from the Army who lost a limb in battle. The Re-Walk system allows paraplegics from all over the world to walk again.
Let’s hope the cure is found quickly. IF I had to make a bet, I’d bet that Israeli scientists are in the lead.
