New virus cases mount as Netanyahu threatens total closure

The number of people who have tested positive in Israel for coronavirus has now risen to 2,495 up from 2,030 cases yesterday morning, the Ministry of Health reports. Of the 2,495 cases, 41 are in a serious condition, 68 are in moderate condition and 66 people have recovered. There have been five fatalities ranging in age from 67 upwards and all the deceased had preexisting serious medical conditions.

The 465 new cases over the past 24 hours set a new daily record and compares with 374 new cases over the previous 24 hours. However, in part this rise is due to the increased number of tests being carried out - 5,240 over the past 24 hours.'
