Peak infected with outbreak of plague: Nearly 2,000 are diagnosed daily. The health minister said two weeks ago that the "red line" is 2,000 infected a day - and we are almost there. 

 

The Health Ministry says number of active patients has increased by 10,000 in only a week; on Monday 1,854 people tested positive for COVID-19, putting the contagion rate at 8%; more young patients in serious condition. According to an AMN report, 1,971 infected with the virus were diagnosed yesterday, and the rate of positive tests also remains very high. In the last two weeks: an average of more than 1,500 infected per day.

 

Israel has reached 30,000 active corona virus patients for the first time since the start of the outbreak, health officials reported Tuesday evening – ynet news reports. 

 

 

 

The Health Ministry reported the number of active patients now stands at 30,488, with the number of confirmed COVID-19 cases since the start of the epidemic climbing to 53,559. The number of active patients has increased by 10,000 cases since last Monday, when the tally stood at 20,251. 

 

The ministry said that on Monday, 1,854 people tested positive for corona virus after 27,299 tests that were conducted, putting the contagion rate at 8%. The number of patients in a serious condition has increased to 256, out of which 77 require ventilator support. The death toll from corona virus-related complications has risen to 424. 

 

 

 

The report added at least 20 patients who are currently in a serious condition are between the ages of 20 to 39, 14 patients between the ages of 40 to 49 and 52 patients between the ages of 50 to 59. 

 

Jerusalem still remains the city with the highest number of active virus cases, with 4,568 diagnoses, followed by Bnei Brak with 2,297, Tel Aviv with 2,009 and Ashdod with 1,116 people currently ill with the disease. The military estimates that if the current pace of COVID-19 infection rate continues, next month Israel will see the number of patients in serious condition rising by a dozen on a daily basis, with hundreds of new virus-related deaths.   

 

Israel could have dozens of new corona virus patients in serious condition and hundreds of virus-related deaths next month if the current infection rate continues on the same trajectory, according to an IDF report published Tuesday.
