A 77-year-old man has died of COVID-19 at Ziv Hospital in Safed. He is the 115th Israeli victim of the disease and the sixth to succumb on Monday.
The man had underlying health problems, the hospital said.
A short time earlier, a 91-year-old woman died in a Pardes Hana medical facility from COVID-19.
The woman, who had underlying health conditions, was being treated at the medical facility after being moved there from her Jerusalem retirement home.
Also Monday, an 85-year-old woman died at Shaare Zedek Medical Center in Jerusalem just hours after a 41-year-old woman succumbed to the virus at Kaplan Hospital in Rehovot. Both had also suffered from underlying health issues.
In Netanya, a man in his 80s passed away at Laniado Hospital from coronavirus complications. The hospital reported that he too had suffered from pre-existing health conditions.
Earlier, an 80-year-old woman passed away at Poriya Medical Center in Tiberias.
She was a resident of a nursing home at Moshav Yavne'el in northern Israel, bringing the total number of COVID-19 victims in the assisted living facility to 13.
In addition, Hadassah Ein Kerem Hospital in Jerusalem said a 78-year-old coronavirus patient had died overnight Sunday. The hospital said he suffered from multiple serious underlying health problems.
The man was the fifth virus victim from Nofim assisted living facility in Jerusalem, where a social worker unknowingly infected some of the residents with the pathogen.
Since the start of the epidemic, the number of nursing home residents who have died from COVID-19 has been disproportionately high, drawing much criticism from the relatives and prompting the state to announce a scheme to carry out thousands of tests a day at such facilities.
