Crowding at rapid COVID test facilities as communications system malfunctions

The Magen David Adom ambulance service, which is running facilities for rapid COVID-19 testing, says that a communications system failure has caused delays and overcrowding in the facilities.

MDA says technicians are working to fix the malfunction in the Cellcom telecom firm’s system.

Additionally, as Israel opens serological testing for all citizens aged three and up, it is being reported that a newly unveiled registration system is also down due to heavy online traffic.

It isn’t immediately clear whether the two malfunctions are linked.
