Israel continues to be pulled down by the undertow of the pandemic’s second wave. The country’s Health Ministry recorded 8,919 new corona cases on Wednesday, the highest yet.

The total number of active cases is 68,811. There are 810 serious cases, of which 206 are on ventilators. Israel has made much of the fact that 800 serious cases is a red line, signaling that the corona wards are full.

On Wednesday night, Channel 12 reported that at least one hospital was releasing serious patients back to their homes even though they required the help of respirators to breathe.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu at a Tuesday meeting of the corona cabinet said that the health care system should prepare for a scenario of 5,000 patients in serious condition. This was up from his Monday evening statement calling for increasing the number of beds to 1,500 by Oct. 1.

The rapid change in numbers is in keeping with the government’s constantly changing prognostications, guidelines and rules that have so exasperated the Israeli public.

The prime minister in that meeting also called for tightening the distance people could travel from their homes from one kilometer to 200 meters, something the government will vote on Thursday.

Defense Minister and Alternate Prime Minister Benny Gantz opposed the tightening.

“We are driving the country crazy,” Gantz said. “If people do not obey instructions, then it does not matter if it is 100 meters, 200 meters or a thousand meters.”

To this Netanyahu replied: “You will not tell me that we are driving the public crazy.”

On Thursday, the government approved via call various new restrictions including the new Knesset law limiting protesters to one kilometer from their homes, a higher 500 shekel fine on anyone entering a residence other than their own home, and a three-day extension of the current closure.

For one week, the government has banned all gatherings, demonstrations, prayers and religious ceremonies in open spaces above 20 people.

Government officials have been preparing the Israeli public for a longer lockdown than the one currently scheduled, which had been set to expire on Oct. 10 until the three-day extension.

On Tuesday, Netanyahu said that the lockdown could last a month, with odds strong that it would continue “much longer.”

Health Minister Yuli Edelstein said on Tuesday “There is no scenario that in 10 days we will lift everything and say, ‘everything is over, everything is fine.”

以色列继续受到大流行第二波浪潮的拖累。该国卫生部周三记录了8,919 例新的冠状病例,创历史新高。

活跃案件总数为 68,811。有 810 起严重病例,其中 206 例在呼吸机上。以色列已经充分认识到 800 例严重案件是一条红线,表明病房已满。


总理本杰明·内塔尼亚胡在周二举行的日冕内阁会议上说,卫生保健系统应为 5,000 名病情严重的患者做好准备。这与他周一晚上发表的声明相提并论,后者呼吁在 10月1日之前将床位数增加到1,500。


总理在那次会议上还呼吁将人们离家的距离从一公里缩短到 200米,政府将在周四投票表决。


甘茨说:“我们使这个国家疯狂。” “如果人们不听从指示,那么无论是 100米,200 米还是一千米都没有关系。”


星期四,政府通过电话批准了各种新的限制措施,包括新的《以色列议会》法律,将抗议者限制在离自己房屋一公里的范围内;对进入自己房屋以外的其他住所的人处以 500 谢克尔的罚款,以及对现有居民延长三天的罚款。关闭。

一个星期以来,政府禁止在 20人以上的露天场所举行所有聚会,示威,祈祷和宗教仪式。



卫生部长尤利·爱德斯坦(Yuli Edelstein)周二表示:“在10天之内,我们将不会解除一切,并说‘一切都结束了,一切都很好。
