At the end of Yom Kippur, the Ministry of Health updates that yesterday 3,426 people were coronated with corona across the country, after performing 24,119 tests. Although this is a low number of patients compared to recent weeks, the percentage verified of the total number of tests is very high – 14.2%, the highest figure recorded so far. A high percentage of positive tests indicates a wide spread in the population, but on the other hand, due to the eve of the holiday, no survey tests were performed, which reduces the percentage of positive tests out of all the tests performed on weekdays.

The number of patients in moderate condition is 287.
