In this webinar, the Israeli Ministry of Health presented its experience regarding digital health in the country's fight against COVID-19. Israel managed to flatten the infection curve and began to gradually lift the measures imposed against the coronavirus in May, such as the opening of schools. Israel is also one of the countries with the lowest COVID-19 mortality rates in the world. Israel is a very advanced nation in terms of digital health, and has used many digital solutions to contain the spread of the coronavirus. This webinar addressed the strategy used by the country to control the epidemic, including the innovations in digital health used, such as Hamagen, or "The Shield", an application that has been key to the efforts carried out.
