Israel exceeds 1,000 daily infections for the first time

July 3, 2020

The number of new coronavirus infections in Israel has exceeded 1,000 cases of coronavirus for the first time in several weeks, followed by spikes across the country that have prompted the authorities to restore certain restrictions.

The total of 1,107 cases registered this Friday represent an increase of 140 patients over the previous record of 967 infections on Wednesday. According to the Israeli Ministry of Health, there have been 27,542 infections and 325 deaths so far.

Israeli experts have not yet fully assessed this increase in infections, which could be due to an increase in the number of tests or, at worst, the excessive acceleration of the country’s reopening.

For all of these reasons, the Israeli government has decided to limit the maximum number of people attending public meetings to 50. In small businesses, the limit is reduced to 20 people.
