In addition to all this, the ministry detailed the morbidity data in localities throughout the country. In Jerusalem, 8,478 infections were reported, in Bnei Brak there were 5,415 infections, and in Tel Aviv-Yafo – 2,944. According to the data, there are 1,700 infected in Ashdod, 1,329 in Beitar Illit and 1,272 in Beit Shemesh.

More on this topic:

Recall that the number of critically ill patients, who passed the 250 mark, is one of the “warning signs” presented by Prime Minister Netanyahu on May 4 when he announced his return to routine. At the same press conference, he stated that the limits would be reimbursed if the number of critically ill patients exceeds 250, the daily number of infected would be 100 (not in the disease centers), and doubling the number of infected every 10 days.

In the first two criteria, Israel has already crossed the same “red lines.” Currently, Israel insists on doubling the number of infected every 28 days.

A relatively encouraging figure is the percentage of positive tests, which stands at 5.7 – the second lowest in the last week. This is a day before the Knesset’s Corona Committee will decide whether to approve the restrictions imposed by the government last week.
