Health Minister Yuli Edelstein, Minister of Internal Security Amir Ohana and Acting Commissioner of Police Motti Cohen will hold a special briefing today (Tuesday) on enforcing the closure guidelines. In addition, the three previously conducted a joint tour of Tel Aviv to review enforcement of the guidelines.

During Yom Kippur, police distributed 3,922 reports for various violations of regulations to combat the corona virus. According to police, 2,789 reports were distributed to people who left their homes for a prohibited purpose, 968 reports were distributed for civilians who did not wear a mask on their faces, 44 reports Violators were registered for isolation and an additional 60 reports were distributed to people who stayed in a place open to the public or in a business whose activities were banned or who stayed at the beach

And despite the closure, the picture of morbidity in Israel is still difficult. A report by the IDF Intelligence Division and the National Knowledge Center for Combating Corona this morning presents a disturbing picture, according to which for the first time the death rate in Israel is higher than in the United States and many other countries.

“The number of new patients per day on a weekly average in Israel continues to be the highest in the world in relation to the size of the population,” the report said.

As of this morning, the death toll in Israel stands at 1,507 people, and in the last month alone it has jumped by about 500. The daily rate of deaths in Israel from Corona is about 3.7 cases per million people, while in the US the figure is about 2.3 cases per million people. In France the rate is one death per million people, and in other countries like Britain, South Korea, Italy and Austria – the rate even Lower than that.

The report also stated that the opening of the education system in Israel has caused the spread of morbidity among the youth and the general population.

According to the document, the number of patients in critical condition continues to rise sharply, and in the past month has risen by 70% – more than tenfold in the last three months. The number of serious patients this morning stands at 756 people, compared to 660 a week ago.

The researchers estimate that the number of critically ill patients is expected to “continue to grow significantly in the near future,” in light of infection among those aged 60 and over. It was further noted that some hospitals are approaching their capacity threshold.
