The number of seriously ill coronavirus patients in Israel has dropped to 406, the lowest since December 16 of last year, the Health Ministry said Tuesday evening.
The new data paints a drastically different image of the spread of the virus in Israel than the one in January, when 1,190 people were in serious or critical condition.
There are currently 203 people on ventilators out of the 611 Israelis receiving treatment for the virus in hospital.
Since midnight on Monday, 249 new cases of COVID-19 were confirmed after 18,500 tests were conducted, indicating a 1.3% positivity rate.
The dramatic drop in infection rates has been largely attributed to the success of the vaccination campaign that began in December. Israel has delivered at least one dose of the two-stage vaccine to 5.2 million of its 9 million population and both doses to 4.7 million people.
Since the start of the pandemic, 6,189 people have succumbed to the virus, 426 of them since the start of March alone.
According to the ministry, nearly 24,000 doses of the coronavirus vaccine were administered Tuesday. The first dose was given to 6,067 Israelis while 18,192 received their second jabs.
Israel has taken major steps to reopen its economy, after three nationwide lockdowns aimed at stemming the spread of the virus while over 200,000 thus far people flocked to parks and nature reserves for the Passover holiday.
Health Minister Yuli Edelstein has urged those who have not yet been vaccinated to do so at the earliest opportunity.
"There is no reason to wait. You see how effective the vaccines are and how dangerous COVID-19 can be," he said recently.
