Far from the destination: Data from the Ministry of Health published this morning (Tuesday) show that in the last day, 1,121 new verified patients were diagnosed in Corona after 8,105 tests were performed, and now the number of people infected since the outbreak has climbed to 233,554, while 167,021 have recovered. The number of seriously ill patients stands at 755, including 207 respirators, while the number of victims remains 1,507.
On Friday, the director general of the Ministry of Health, Prof. Hezi Levy, was asked about the outline for leaving the quarantine, and explained: “We have 15% verified patients and we must go below 10%, to about 7%. I assume that we will not leave the quarantine immediately after Simchat Torah, but we will discuss whether the scope of the gathering can be increased in a number of places. ”

Before Yom Kippur, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu held discussions following the rise in morbidity, and suggested steps to curb the spread. Netanyahu said that “the health care system must prepare for 1,500 critically ill patients within days.”
Netanyahu added that “we will prepare the health system for the winter along with advocacy efforts and enforcement of wearing masks and maintaining social distance, and we will move slowly and gradually to the corona routine with speed tests, protection of the elderly and more. Together we will defeat the Corona. ”
On Wednesday, the Corona Cabinet will convene to discuss issues in further steps in the fight against the Corona, and in particular the continuation of the closure outline, the criteria for moving to the next stages and additional measures to reduce morbidity.
