Coronavirus has claimed the lives of 225 Israelis, the Health Ministry reported Friday evening.
The number of people who have recovered from the virulent strain continues to outstrip the number of active infections for the third day in a row, the ministry said.
Among Israel's 16,101 confirmed cases, 9,156 have now been found free of the disease, and 6,720 are still battling the virus.
The number of patients receiving respiratory assistance stands at 83, the ministry said, and the number of patients in serious condition remains at 103.
Another 77 people are in moderate condition and 6,540 show minor symptoms.
There are currently 299 people being treated in hospitals across the country, while 3,850 are being treated at home and 1,719 people are recovering in specially designated hotels.
Ministers voted earlier Friday to reopen primary schools early next week under Health Ministry guidelines though some local governments say they have not been given enough time to prepare a safe opening of their schools.
More restrictions are expected to be lifted after the cabinet meeting Sunday, with shopping malls and outdoor markets to be allowed to open.
