Some good news: Data from the Ministry of Health published this morning (Sunday) show that in the last day 2,557 verified patients were diagnosed with corona after 24,781 tests were performed. Since the outbreak of the plague, 264,857 Israelis have been infected in Israel, including 70,172 active patients, while 193,002 people have recovered.
The number of patients with a severe condition is 830, including 223 respirators, while in addition the condition of 312 patients is defined as moderate. The death toll since the outbreak remained 1,682.
Prof. Eran Segal of the Weizmann Institute referred to the morbidity data this morning, and said in an interview with Gali Tzahal that “there is a decrease in morbidity in Arab society – the infection rate is below 1, and we also see a decrease in the number of verified and hospitalized.” The general has braking in morbidity. The coefficient of infection is around 1 and in a declining trend. “
In a tweet on Twitter, Segal added: “We will mention that the level of morbidity is high, so braking is a necessary first step, but from here we need to see a transition from braking to a downward trend to low levels that can be controlled with an epidemiological investigation.”
Cautious optimism: the increase in morbidity in the general sector may have been halted, and the rate of infection there around 1 and in a declining trend
In the Arab sector: a decrease in morbidity, at the rate of the first closure
In the ultra-Orthodox sector: still the peak of expansion

The Home Front Command Chief of Staff, Brigadier General Itzik Bar, explained that “the higher the morbidity, the more we will interrupt the chain of infection, but not while we have set ourselves – 48 hours – but more.” He noted that “we are going to reach a target of 100,000 tests a day on November 1, and right now all the effort is concentrated on that.”
Meanwhile, Prof. Hagai Levin, chairman of the Association of Public Health Physicians, came out in an interview here on Monday against the closure policy, saying: “When you give medicine the wrong treatment, then you do not receive the benefit and you do not receive the side effects. It’s a pike-close, it’s causing the public to lose faith. We need to allow people to go out into nature, to allow small businesses to work. “
