Prof. Ehud Qimron's Open Letter
Israeli Ministry of Health
Published: January 6th-10th, 2022
Professor Ehud Qimron, head of the Department of Microbiology and
Immunology at Tel Aviv University and one of the leading Israeli
immunologists, has written an open letter sharply criticizing the
Israeli – and indeed global – management of the coronavirus pandemic.
Original letter in Hebrew: N12 News (January 6, 2022) (2); translated by

“History will judge the hysteria” (INN) (3).
of Health, it’s time to admit failure
In the end, the truth will always be
revealed, and the truth about the coronavirus policy is beginning to be
revealed. When the destructive concepts collapse one by one, there is
nothing left but to tell the experts who led the management of the
pandemic – we told you so.
Two years late, you finally realize that a respiratory virus cannot be
defeated and that any such attempt is doomed to fail. You do not admit
it, because you have admitted almost no mistake in the last two years,
but in retrospect it is clear that you have failed miserably in almost
all of your actions, and even the media is already having a hard time
covering your shame.
You refused to admit that the infection comes in waves that fade by
themselves, despite years of observations and scientific knowledge. You
insisted on attributing every decline of a wave solely to your actions,
and so through false propaganda “you overcame the plague.” And again
you defeated it, and again and again and again.
You refused to admit that mass testing is ineffective, despite your own
contingency plans explicitly stating so (“Pandemic Influenza Health
System Preparedness Plan, 2007”, p. 26).
You refused to admit that recovery is more protective than a vaccine,
despite previous knowledge and observations showing that non-recovered
vaccinated people (4)
are more likely to be infected than recovered people.
You refused to admit that the vaccinated are contagious despite the
observations. Based on this, you hoped to achieve herd immunity by
vaccination — and you failed in that as well.
You insisted on ignoring the fact that the disease is dozens of times
more dangerous for risk groups and older adults, than for young people
who are not in risk groups, despite the knowledge that came from China
as early as 2020.
You refused to adopt the “Barrington Declaration” (5), signed by more than
60,000 scientists and medical professionals, or other common sense
programs. You chose to ridicule, slander, distort and discredit them.
Instead of the right programs and people, you have chosen professionals
who lack relevant training for pandemic management (physicists as chief
government advisers, veterinarians, security officers, media personnel,
and so on).
You have not set up an effective system for reporting side effects from
the vaccines, and reports on side effects have even been deleted from
your Facebook page. Doctors avoid linking side effects to the vaccine,
lest you persecute them as you did with some of their colleagues. You
have ignored many reports of changes in menstrual intensity and
menstrual cycle times. You hid data that allows for objective and
proper research (for example, you removed the data on passengers at Ben
Gurion Airport). Instead, you chose to publish non-objective articles
together with senior Pfizer executives on the effectiveness and safety
Irreversible damage to trust
However, from the heights of your hubris, you have also ignored the
fact that in the end the truth will be revealed. And it begins to be
revealed. The truth is that you have brought the public’s trust in you
to an unprecedented low, and you have eroded your status as a source of
authority. The truth is that you have burned hundreds of billions of
shekels (6) to
no avail – for publishing intimidation, for ineffective
tests, for destructive lockdowns and for disrupting the routine of life
in the last two years.
You have destroyed the education of our children and their future. You
made children feel guilty, scared, smoke, drink, get addicted, drop
out, and quarrel, as school principals around the country attest. You
have harmed livelihoods, the economy, human rights, mental health and
You slandered colleagues who did not surrender to you, you turned the
people against each other, divided society and polarized the discourse.
You branded, without any scientific basis, people who chose not to get
vaccinated as enemies of the public and as spreaders of disease. You
promote, in an unprecedented way, a draconian policy of discrimination,
denial of rights and selection of people, including children, for their
medical choice. A selection that lacks any epidemiological
When you compare the destructive policies you are pursuing with the
sane policies of some other countries — you can clearly see that the
destruction you have caused has only added victims beyond the
vulnerable to the virus. The economy you ruined, the unemployed you
caused, and the children whose education you destroyed — they are the
surplus victims as a result of your own actions only.
There is currently no medical emergency, but you have been cultivating
such a condition for two years now because of lust for power, budgets
and control. The only emergency now is that you still set policies and
hold huge budgets for propaganda and psychological engineering instead
of directing them to strengthen the health care system.
This emergency must stop!
