Medics across Israel diagnosed 1,360 new coronavirus cases in the last 24 hours, the Health Ministry said Saturday evening. The death toll rose by three to 354.
The ministry specified that 134 patients were in life-threatening condition, including 49 on ventilators.
As of Saturday night, Israel had 18,296 active cases of the virus.
Israel has seen a dramatic spike in coronavirus cases since the start of June after a gradual easing of lockdown restrictions that had paralyzed the country, leading to a devastating impact on the economy and over a million jobs lost.
As a result, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's government reimposed lockdowns on virus hotspots inside five cities across the country, including Jerusalem, Beit-Shemesh, Lod, Ramla and Kiryat-Malachi.
