Israel has universal healthcare. How well are they controlling the virus and treatments?

Actually not that great. My cousins were dogging me just weeks ago because they were going to the mall while we're still on a hard lockdown. Now suddenly numbers are spiking in Israel and they're not being so effing מנופח about it anymore.

Not sure why you think there is a correlation between universal healthcare and how well a nation controls the spread of the virus.

The effect of the virus on a given country has nothing to do with the type of health-care system it has. Some countries with universal health-care have done very well; others have not.
It's largely a matter of the steps a given government and its public health agencies took. Public health agencies are not identical with health-care systems, which comprise doctors and hospitals.
Germany has the oldest national health-care system in the world (created by a conservative government in the 19th century). The Germans have done extremely well at controlling the virus, but that's largely because of the steps the German government took.

The type of health care system has little practical effect on the spread and effects of the Wuhan coronavirus.
