Wed, Jan 13 2021, 9:30 AM

9,025 Israelis were diagnosed yesterday (Tue) as positive for the Coronavirus. Data from the Ministry of Health shows that in the past day, about 125,000 tests were performed and the positive rate is 7.2%. 1,760 corona patients are currently hospitalized, 1,043 of them in critical condition. 262 patients are connected to respirators.


Since the outbreak of the plague, 3,770 corona patients have died in Israel - 26 of them yesterday. 99 patients have died since the beginning of the week and 428 since the beginning of January. For comparison, 481 corona patients died in December and 313 in November.


The number of active cases in Israel reached a new record and stands at 78,215, and Beit Shemesh is the 4th leading city in the country in the number of active cases. In Jerusalem there are 15,491 active patients, in Bnei Brak 4,178, in Modi'in Illit 3,214, in Beit Shemesh 2,441, in Tel Aviv-Yafo 2,164.


The municipality published the city's Coronavirus data this morning:

Diagnosed in the last day: 280

Number of samples: 1826

Infection rate: 15.33%

Active verified number in the city: 2441

Cases confirmed in the last seven days: 1779

Traffic light score: 9.69 red.


Given that the stats are still high, the Ministry of Health is expected to request an extension of the tight lockdown for at least a week. However, discussions of the exit strategy from it have already begun. Initial discussions on the subject indicate that the outline will be implemented in three beats - firstly, the education system along with the abolition of the 1,000 meter limit and the resumption of flights. Only at the end of the process, in the third beat, are restaurants and gyms supposed to open.


In the last two days, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu has held two discussions on the exit plan and on the issue of the green passport that will be given to those vaccinated against the Coronavirus. Another hearing will probably be held this coming Thursday.
