July 1 | The seventh wave of the coronavirus epidemic in Israel: about 81 thousand infected, more than 300 in serious condition

On Friday, July 1, the Israeli Ministry of Health published new data on the coronavirus epidemic.

The Ministry of Health announces the seventh wave of the epidemic. Coronavirus departments in hospitals reopened.

Quarantine measures may soon be tightened. So far, the Ministry of Health does not insist on the return of the “mask regime” in the premises and public transport, although it recommends wearing masks.

In total, since the beginning of the pandemic, 4,355,344 cases of coronavirus infection have been detected in the country.

The number of infected people is taken into account by PCR tests and tests at checkpoints (a positive home test result is not taken into account in statistics if it is not confirmed at the checkpoint). Note that many infected people are treated on their own, relying on the experience gained and monitoring their condition with the help of home tests. That is, the actual number of infected people may be much higher than indicated in the reports of the Ministry of Health.

Over the past 24 hours, 33,525 tests have been carried out. Coronavirus was detected in 34% of cases. (The number of tests being conducted is clearly not enough.)

At the moment, 80568 people are infected (+9091 per day).

10958 cases of COVID-19 died (0 per day).

996 cases in hospitals (-41 per day), others are recovering at home.

The condition of 307 patients is assessed by doctors as severe (+11 per day), 47 are connected to ventilators or ECMO (+1 per day).

The infectiousness index (an index of the reproduction of the virus, showing how many people, on average, one infected person transmits it) – 1.1.

According to a report by the Israeli Ministry of Health, 92% of seriously ill patients are over 60 years old. The vast majority of those infected tolerate the disease easily.
