A 19-year-old woman died of COVID-19, becoming the country's youngest victim of the pandemic, Hadassah Medical Center reported on Saturday.
The deceased suffered from several preexisting medical conditions that made her highly vulnerable to the respiratory disease, including pulmonary hypertension, obesity and congestive heart failure.
She was in critical condition requiring artificial lung ventilation for the last 10 days.
The patient was also reportedly given an experimental treatment, a passive vaccine containing gamma globulins.
According to the hospital, several staff entered quarantine to the patient's large viral load and the lengthy resuscitations she underwent.
This takes the pandemic death toll in Israel to 315.
The country saw a sharp rise in virus cases in the course of the last week, with at least 2,135 new coronavirus diagnoses, more than the whole prior month of May.
