The Health Ministry revises its COVID data for yesterday, now saying that 41,154 people were confirmed positive for coronavirus Monday, several thousand higher than reported this morning.

The ministry has only recently begun counting both PCR and antigen positive tests in its official data, after a new testing policy went into effect this week prioritizing PCR tests for those over 60.

According to the new data, there are currently 194,523 active COVID cases in the country, with 703 hospitalized and 253 of those in serious condition.

So far, 413,576 people in Israel have received a 4th dose of the COVID vaccine.
