The Ministry of Health updated this morning (Sunday) that during Saturday 1,709 verified cases of Corona virus were diagnosed. The number of active patients in Israel currently stands at 42,570. According to the data, the declining trend in morbidity in recent days continues, including the number of patients with a serious condition of 588 – for the first time since August.
To date, 6.1 million people have been vaccinated in Israel in the first dose, 5.6 million in the second dose and 3.4 million in the third dose. In recent days, there has been an increase in the number of vaccinated people in the third dose: about 75,000 on Thursday, 45,000 on Friday and 21,000 on Saturday. By comparison, last Saturday less than 6,000 people were vaccinated in the third dose.
Meanwhile, as of this morning, the new green mark will take effect, to which those who have been vaccinated in the third dose are vaccinated, who have been vaccinated less than half a year since they were vaccinated in the second dose, or recoverers who fell less than six months ago. Due to heavy traffic, the green character app and website crashed. Corona Projector Professor Salman Zarqa Said in an interview with Radio 103FM that due to this, the validity of the old character will be extended by several days.
