In a briefing with reporters, Dr. Sharon Alroy-Preis, the head of public health services in the Health Ministry, says the rates of COVID-19 infection in Israel are highly encouraging.
“We see the infections declining and we are very encouraged. There is a very significant decline,” she says.
The pandemic is “subsiding,” she adds.
Alroy-Preis says most Israeli cities and towns are now low-infection “green” zones. Israel no longer has any highly infected, or red, areas, she says.
