2.5 times more positive tests in the ultra-Orthodox sector – compared to the general sector: At this time, the Corona Cabinet meeting is being held, at which Projector Prof. Roni Gamzo presents particularly worrying data to ministers, which indicate that the morbidity situation in the ultra-Orthodox sector is the most severe of all the other sectors – and in significant numbers.
The full presentation presented by Prof. Gamzo to the ministers in the Corona Cabinet
The data show that currently, the rate of positive corona tests performed in the ultra-Orthodox sector is 28.6%, compared to 13.4% of positive tests in the Arab sector. In the general sector, on the other hand, the percentage of positive tests is high as well, but low compared to the Arab sector and certainly to the ultra-Orthodox sector – 11.9% of the tests performed turn out to be positive.
A breakdown of the data in ultra-Orthodox society by age shows that the vast majority of newcomers are young men aged 17-24. After them – children and teenagers aged 10-16. From this it can be concluded that a significant source of infection is probably in the ultra-Orthodox educational institutions.
Another statistic that is of concern is the prognosis of serious patients. According to the scenarios presented by Prof. Gamzo, in 6 days, between 826 and 1,090 critically ill patients are expected to be in Israel. Currently, according to data from the Ministry of Health, there are already 810 patients in critical condition – while according to the scenario presented, next week there will be 826 Israelis in critical condition. According to the intermediate scenario – 949, while according to the aggravating scenario – 1,090 critically ill patients.
According to Prof. Gamzo’s plan, another 1,500 beds will be opened in the hospitals – 750 in the next five days and another 750 by October 15. 20% of the new beds – for the critical and respiratory patients and 80% of the beds are intended for the hard, medium and light patients.
