    The center, part of IDF's intelligence unit, also reported that 817 people tested positive for coronavirus on Sunday alone. At least 17,752 tests were conducted, putting the infection rate at 4.6%, slightly down from the contagion rate reported a day earlier.
    On Sunday, the contagion rate stood at 5.2%, the highest it has been in two weeks.
    The report said Israel's coronavirus-related death toll has increased to 332, after a 78-year-old patient with underlying health conditions passed away at the Hillel Yaffe Medical Center in Hadera.
    The Health Ministry said the number of patients in serious condition has risen to 89, with 32 people in need of ventilator support. The number of active patients has increased to 11,856.

    The number of Israelis currently in quarantine has gone up to 40,250 after the order allowing phone tracking of confirmed coronavirus carriers by the Shin Bet, went into effect on Thursday.
