In a weekly summary, the authors of the report state that, as every weekend, a small number of tests were performed yesterday (7,973) and 218 infections were diagnosed, while in practice the percentage of carriers of all new tests is 2.8%. In the Arab sector, the rate of positive respondents is 7.2 percent, in the ultra-Orthodox sector 6.1%, and in the general sector only 1.4%.
Last week, 151 people died from the virus, with the daily average standing at 21 deaths, a decrease from the previous week which averaged 28 dead per day.
There is also a significant decrease in the number of severe patients with 415 compared to 512 last week. Also in the number of hospitalized patients sleeps with 728 compared to 1,011. A more moderate but existing declining trend is in the number of respirators, which stands at 171 compared with 189, and in the number of patients in a moderate condition, which stands at 122 compared to 163.
In terms of enforcement, it seems that the public internalized the state’s instructions and according to the report last week, there was a decrease in the number of reports given about not wearing a mask every day. To illustrate last week, an average of 1,370 reports were given every day, while this week there was a drop to less than 1,000 reports a day.
A similar situation exists among businesses in Israel that have begun to pay even more attention to regulations. In fact last week about 60 reports a day were given to businesses and in the last week no such high number of reports was recorded.
