5,140 people infected with the corona virus have been identified in the last day - according to data from the Ministry of Health published tonight (Tuesday).

The number of serious patients is 373 - an increase of 9 since yesterday, including 82 in critical condition and 61 respirators.

The positive test rate is 4.91% of the total tests - a record rate for positive tests in the current wave of spread.



Out of about 600,000 vaccinated with a third vaccine dose, less than 50 reports of side effects from this were received.

It was also reported that the reported symptoms were mild and passed quickly.

Meanwhile, MDA teams have embarked on a project to perform serological tests for children aged 3-12 in order to grant a certificate similar to a recovery certificate, for children who have antibodies to corona in their blood.



Meanwhile, police will start deploying undercover cops today who will work in civilian clothes and enter banquet halls, shows and parties in order to enforce non-wearing of masks.

This, in the shadow of the high rise in morbidity.

Following the decisions of the political echelon, by the end of the week the number of police officers assigned to the enforcement of the corona will reach 1,800.

The director general of the Ministry of Health, Prof. Nachman Ash, said yesterday that if the latest steps approved by the Corona Cabinet do not help curb the disease, the Ministry of Health will seek to expand the restrictions. We are acting in different ways but the situation is worrying, "Ash said at a press briefing.



According to Ash, the response to the third dose of the vaccine is high," but there are about a million people who have not yet received a first vaccine. I urge you to get out and get vaccinated, this is the best way to stop the disease. We do not want to get into a situation where we decide on a closure. We do everything we can to avoid it. The vaccine will help us avoid it - go get vaccinated. "



Despite the approval of the outline for the start of the school year, Ash noted that "as we get closer to September 1 we will know if we can open the school year safely. We are doing everything possible to get the school started as a routine."

On the education system, he said that "education in red cities is not closed automatically. We will carry out more tests but we will not act automatically like last year".

Earlier, the head of the public health services, Dr. Sharon Elrai Price, said in a discussion in the Knesset's Constitution Committee that "everything must be done to slow down the epidemic, including an unpaved green mark, a purple mark and a restriction of assembly.

We need to take action right now to slow down the epidemic and let the vaccines do the work. ”



She added that“ the epidemic race needs to be halted.

Apart from the masks, there are currently no restrictions that will reduce the morbidity, the green mark will not do so. "She also noted that the death toll from Corona in the fourth wave has crossed the century.
