According to the Israeli public broadcaster Kan, Israel will donate some 100,000 doses of vaccines to about twenty countries.

The arrival of the first coronavirus vaccines to Honduras and Guatemala is scheduled for this Thursday from a relatively unexpected destination: Israel.

Honduran President Juan Orlando Hernández confirmed on Twitter an Israeli donation of 5,000 doses to the Central American country, which will use them for the immunization of health personnel.

Both Central American nations they expect to receive the vast majority of their vaccines through this mechanism, which, however, has prioritized other countries.
