Details of the exact layout will be announced in the coming days. The outline will be activated subject to the level of morbidity and government approval.

The Ministry of Health also agreed to the request of the local authorities, the traffic light will be updated today, and educational institutions in localities that have turned yellow will be opened.

Meanwhile, the Ministry of Health announced that 1,869 people were diagnosed with corona during the corona day in Israel. This increased the number of verified patients to 723,038, of whom 60,976 were active patients.

The hospitals hospitalize 1,605 people, of whom 1,008 are seriously ill and 284 are respiratory. To date, 5,368 corona patients have died in Israel. Yesterday, 24,732 tests were performed and 7.8% were found to be positive.

The Intelligence Division report released this morning indicated a continued downward trend in morbidity, with an infection coefficient of 0.85.

Among those aged 60 and over, there has been a decline in the rate of those diagnosed and seriously ill, probably as a result of the vaccination campaign. The opposite trend was recorded in young people, who make up about 40% of the severe patients last week.
