Omicron wave seen slowing down, but serious cases expected to continue rising

Health officials believe the Omicron wave in Israel is on the downswing, but that the number of patients in serious condition will still continue to rise, Kan news reports.

According to the station, experts think some 3 million Israelis have contracted the Omicron variant alone, a number that would far outstrip the 2.6 million cases Israel has confirmed since February 2020.

Eran Segal, an expert who has closely tracked the pandemic in Israel, notes that Wednesday was the first to see a drop in daily cases in a week.
