A further increase in the number of respirators, four die today from Corona
“In light of the data from the last two weeks, I call on the government: Wait. Do not tighten the steps at this stage. Do not close restaurants and certainly not summer camps.” According to Bennett, “the government must set up a system to cut off adhesive chains today, and wait until next Thursday to examine the trend.”
Bennett claims that the numbers from the last two weeks show the beginning of a slowdown in infection numbers: “In light of the cumulative data of the last two weeks, it appears that there is a consistent slowdown in the multiplication coefficient of both infected and moderately and severely ill patients. She is more moderate.
“A doubling rate of 8-9 days for those infected, about two weeks ago, now the rate is about 18-19 (!), A similar trend even in severe patients, with a delay of several days.”
In light of data from the last two weeks,
I call on the government:
Do not aggravate the steps at this point.
There is no need for it and there is no justification for it.
Do not close restaurants and certainly not summer camps.

2. Braking will take time, and there may also be a change for the worse. So be patient. Therefore – the Government of Israel: Wait. Not to ease or make it worse. “
3. To attack the establishment of the corona eradication system. ”
