The number of people in critical condition in hospitals has exceeded the threshold set by the Ministry of Health and the government for the insufficiency of the health system, and stands at 812 people hospitalized in critical and critical condition across the country. Another 300 people are hospitalized in fair condition. Although this is a high number, it is a volatile figure, and it could also fall slightly below 800 in the coming days.
However, the figure reflects the complex situation in which the medical staffs are located; While the number of patients in critical condition requiring close care of large medical staffs is rising, 4228 staff including doctors and nurses are absent from work due to the need to stay in isolation after exposure to a verified patient, or due to Corona infection (1,980 of them face active Corona disease).
The flow threshold of the system is also approaching the edge. In the latest report by Prof. Roni Gamzo’s barometer team, it was stated that corona patients occupy about 40% of the inner beds and about 15% of the emergency rooms. According to the Information and Knowledge Center, the number of patients in critical condition as a result of the virus continues to rise steeply; An increase of about 70% in the last month, and more than 10 times in the last three months. According to the rate of infection, it seems that the increase in the number of patients in a critical condition is expected to continue to grow significantly in the near future. Some hospitals are approaching the threshold of their capacity – with almost full occupancy of the corona wards, and the opening of corona wards at the expense of other wards. This, according to the concern, may have an impact on the quality of care.
Regarding the situation within the wards, Prof. Dror Mevorach, director of the Hadassah Department of Internal Medicine, explains, .
The rate of deaths in Israel has skyrocketed in less than a month
Over the past few months, Israel has prided itself on curbing the worst outcome of the corona crisis, and the death toll per capita remains low compared to the rest of the world. But after the Ministry of Health’s data for August indicated an excess mortality rate of 10% in Israel, a security report published this morning (Tuesday) compared Israel’s morbidity data to the United States, Italy, Austria, South Korea, Britain and France. According to the report, for the first time, Israel surpasses the United States in the number of deaths per day from Corona in relation to population size.
According to the report, on a weekly average, the daily mortality rate from Corona per million people in Israel is 3.47 – while at the beginning of September, it was 1.52. In less than a month, the rate of deaths in Israel has risen significantly. In the United States, for comparison, the mortality rate from Corona is 2.25 cases per million people daily. The number of new patients per day, on a weekly average, continues to be the highest in the world in relation to the size of the population.
And what about the percentage of positive tests? While the Ministry of Health has defined the decline in the rate of positive tests as a condition for easing the closure measures, the trend is quite the opposite. According to AMN, despite the increase in the number of tests in Israel, the percentage of positive tests has also increased and continues to be very high (around 15%, without survey tests). ‘In the general population. This rate is particularly pronounced in the ultra-Orthodox sector, where more than a quarter of the subjects were identified as positive for the virus.
