More than 10,000 new cases of COVID-19 were confirmed yesterday, for the second day in a row, new Health Ministry statistics show.

On Monday, 10,774 people tested positive for the coronavirus, with a positivity rate of 6.09% of all those tested. There are currently 82,028 active COVID cases, with 1,117 hospitalized, 673 in serious condition and 194 of those on ventilators.

More than 2.9 million Israelis have already received a third dose of the coronavirus vaccine, but Health Ministry Nachman Ash said earlier today that he had hoped to already see a downward trend in new cases.
