Coronavirus has claimed 208 lives in Israel so far and 117 people are currently seriously ill with COVID-19, the Health Ministry said Tuesday morning.
There are 15,589 confirmed cases of the virus in Israel and 94 patients are presently on a ventilator.
In all, at least 7,375 people have recovered from the disease in Israel.
A total of 354 people are currently being treated in hospitals for COVID-19, 5,025 are being treated at home and 1,726 are in specially designated hotels. Another 901 people are waiting to be informed whether they require hospitalization.
Although the number of coronavirus patients continues to rise, it seems the rate of infections is decreasing steadily - prompting the Health Ministry to mull the closure of specialized coronavirus wards across the country.
Israel has been slowly but steadily lifting restrictions imposed to curb the spread of coronavirus as the number of recoveries continues to outpace the number of new infections.
