The IIBR was established in 1952 as part of the Israel Defence Forces’ Science Corps, and later became a civilian organization.

Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu  earlier on pledged $60 million (about NIS 210 million) at an international donors conference raising funds for the joint fight against the coronavirus pandemic.

Like all countries, Israel is now trying to find the right balance between protecting the health of our citizens by preventing another spike in infections, and enabling the reopening of our economy, but, ultimately, to ensure both the public health and national prosperity, we must all work together on improving diagnostics, accelerating therapies and ultimately developing a vaccine. I am confident that Israel’s leading research institutions, its world renowned scientists and our unique culture of innovation can enable us to play an important role in advancing solutions on all three fronts. We hope to work with other countries to leverage our unique capabilities to find solutions for the benefit of all.

Israel started to work on finding a vaccine to Coronavirus even before it reaches Israel. As per the Order of Netanyahu, Israel Defense Biological Research Institute started working on it from early February of this year. IIBR is involved in developing chemical and biological weapons and antidotes and defenses against them as per the Internation media.

In Early March IIBR denied that they haven’t found any breakthrough in finding an antidote to Coronavirus.

The biological institute is a world-renowned research and development agency, which relies on experienced researchers and scientists with great knowledge and quality infrastructures. There are now more than 50 experienced scientists working at the institute on researching and developing a medical remedy for the virus.
