Almost 3,000 COVID cases diagnosed so far today; 12 new deaths

Updated figures by the Health Ministry show that after 6,343 new COVID-19 cases were diagnosed yesterday with a positivity rate of 4.89 percent, 2,942 more have been identified so far today.

That brings the total number of confirmed infections in Israel to 910,569  since the pandemic began, including 36,251 active cases.

The number of serious cases is slightly down compared with this morning — from 394, down to 388 — but that could be due to the fact that there have also been 12 deaths since this morning for a total of 6,571.

The data shows that 5,819,152 people, out of Israel’s population of 9.3 million, have received at least one vaccine dose, while 5,401,750 have received at least two, and 619,538 have received a third, or booster, shot.
