A record number of patients is severe, a jump in mortality in the Arab sector


Israel is in quarantine, and the rate of positive corona tests continues to rise – and with it the number of patients is difficult: According to the Ministry of Health, a record 823 seriously ill patients are hospitalized. One week ago, the number of patients was 665, and since then there has been a 23% increase in their number.

The data show that 4,949 Israelis were diagnosed yesterday (Tuesday) as positive for Corona. 15% of the tests yesterday were positive – meaning one close to 6.6 tests is positive. The number of verified people is expected to increase in the coming days, after the number of tests during Yom Kippur was very low, so the number of decipherments is still not high compared to last week – by then there were already more than 8,000 verified people a day.

1,589 corona patients are hospitalized in hospitals across the country. 203 patients connected to respirators. Among the respirators – a girl less than nine years old and a boy. 73% of respirators are men.

The death toll stands at 1,547. Since the virus arrived in Israel in February, 239,222 people have been diagnosed in Israel, 122,340 of them in September. This month, an average of over 4,000 new infections were diagnosed each day.

In Israel, there are 64,608 active patients. In 16 cities across the country there are over 1,000 patients. 7,188 of them are residents of Jerusalem, 4,052 live in Bnei Brak, 2,946 in Ashdod, 2,184 in Tel Aviv-Yafo, 1,795 in Petah Tikva, 1,759 in Netanya, 1,695 in Modi’in Illit, 1,474 in Beer Sheva, 1,335 in Rishon Lezion, 1,293 in Haifa, 1,286 in Holon, 1,182 in Rehovot, 1,182 in Rehovot, 1,116 in Elad, 1,059 in Beitar Illit and 1,001 in Ashkelon.

A total of 2756 people were hospitalized (cumulatively) during the month of September in a critical and critical condition in the hospitals. For comparison, in August the number of patients in critical condition was 1624. The data also show that Hadassah Ein Kerem and Shaare Zedek hospitals in Jerusalem, Ichilov in Tel Aviv and Barzilai in Ashkelon are the busiest in terms of occupancy rates in the corona wards. Over the past month there has also been a record number of deaths, 596, as a result of complications of the virus and in fact more than a third of the deaths occurred during September.

The Corona Information and Knowledge Center report states that the epidemic is spreading at a rapid rate of increase in the past month, reflecting a wide increase in morbidity in the general population and in all sectors at the national level, and only partially affected by increasing testing. Among adolescents, as well as in the general population.

The AMN report states that Israel is one of the leading countries in the world in the number of deaths per day from Corona, in relation to the size of the population. The number of new patients per day in Israel also continues to be the highest in the world in relation to the size of the population. “Even if the percentage of positives is prominent in a particular sector or age group, the morbidity crosses all sectors, localities and ages,” they wrote.

Data presented in the assessment of the situation this morning show the big jump in mortality in Arab society this month, probably due to the “wedding season” there.

According to the HMOs’ forecasts before Yom Kippur for fear of a heavy load in the number of tests, this morning they report a significant accumulation of samples in the laboratories and a delay in receiving the results. A letter from the United Health Insurance Fund stated that “due to an unusual load in the samples sampled yesterday, which indicates the trend we expect in the coming days, a delay in the results should be expected. We would like to reflect this to patients and adjust expectations to the exceptional situation created to avoid overloading applications.” One of the main reasons for the congestion is the opening of the Home Front Command’s checkpoints yesterday, which residents could reach even without a doctor’s referral.
