4,863 people were diagnosed in Corona in the last day, which is 5.6% of the 89,610 tests performed - the Ministry of Health updated tonight (Saturday).

It was also updated that the number of critically ill patients has risen sharply, and currently stands at 717 people, including 195 respirators.

7,507 people died from the virus in the outbreak of the plague in Israel.



The data comes in the wake of a decision by experts from the US Food and Drug Administration at night to recommend vaccinating in the third dose against the virus only those aged 65 and over, as well as at-risk populations, including medical and teaching staff.

The vote came after experts voted against a recommendation to give the booster to the entire population over the age of 16.



In Israel, 3,031,423 people have already been vaccinated in the third dose, after the three million mark was crossed yesterday.

Following the FDA decision, experts in Israel have strengthened the position of the Ministry of Health regarding the administration of the third vaccine against corona to all those who have passed five months since receiving the second dose.

Also, the decision in the United States is not expected to affect the green label policy, according to which on October 1 it will expire for those who can already and have not yet been vaccinated in the third dose.



Health Minister Nitzan Horowitz wrote on Twitter that it should be emphasized that the American committee recommends in the first phase of the booster operation in the United States a vaccine for a wider group than the one that started the booster operation in the country.

This, after yesterday Israel crossed the threshold of three million vaccinators in the third batch.

"The vaccine is safe and very effective," said Minister Horowitz (Photo: Reuven Castro)

"In the United States, as in many countries, it is clear what we have seen here and seen in hospitals: the protection afforded by the vaccine fades over time and a complementary dose is required. This is no exception, many routine vaccinations are given in several doses," Horowitz wrote.



"The vaccine is very safe and effective," Horowitz said. For a third vaccine: Britain, Germany, France, Finland, Argentina, Canada, Austria, Greece, and Israel "
