Nearly a year since the outbreak of the corona virus in the world, and more than six months since the first case was detected in Israel, Prof. Ran Blitzer, a member of the Ministry of Health’s epidemic team and head of innovation at Clalit Health Insurance, reveals studies that show opposite facts.
In an interview with N12 News, Blitzer said: “People attributed the number of deaths to the extraordinary number of tests done here in Israel, but looking at the hardest figure, which is the number of deaths, shows that we are also among the highest in the world.”

Blitzer clarified that contrary to the claim that the dead from the corona died due to background diseases, a new study shows that without the corona they would have been expected to live at least 6 more months.
Blitzer noted that new viral behaviors have been revealed in the past month: “One of the first things we see is that there is a very large minority influence on the majority. Studies show that there is a kind of Pareto law that happens in Corona infection. “Follow the guidelines, if everyone meets only 2-3 people beyond the nuclear family, the numbers will drop quickly. On the other hand, if a minority behaves poorly, all achievements can disappear.”
He adds that “the second thing we learned is that staying in a closed space is more dangerous than we thought. I mean, we knew about droplet adhesion, but what we learned is that there is also an” aerosol “transfer (particles in the air). These are small particles in the air smaller than microns and these particles end up “It’s flying and accumulating in the enclosed spaces, so even if you wear a mask and keep your distance, this is a big problem.”
Following the new discoveries, Prof. Blitzer recommends avoiding staying in enclosed spaces as much as possible with anyone outside the nuclear family if absolutely not necessary. If it is by no means possible to avoid – then an open window is required, ventilation as much as possible, a mask that is tight on the nose and mouth, along with a physical distance of 2 meters.
Blitzer rejected statements that Corona victims had background illnesses that would have caused their deaths anyway: “The elderly of the patients. This means that the background diseases affect the margins regardless of the corona.”
At the end of his speech, Blitzer said: “The huge numbers we see here, which already significantly exceed the expected mortality and are very high relative to the world, it is because of the corona, not ‘with the corona’ but because of the corona and the aggravation it causes background diseases.” He said that in recent weeks we have witnessed a downward trend in the average age of the serious patients who died, so that “we will have to update the above results and rates, which unfortunately are still expected to rise.”
