Corona on its Way Out of Israel

Some 80 percent of Israeli towns and villages have reported no new COVID-19 cases for several days, with Tel Aviv among them, and only four cities nationwide have had more than five new cases in the past few days: Jerusalem, Hura, Bnei Brak, and Beit Shemesh. (Jerusalem and Hura have been under a partial lockdown, as have two neighborhoods in Beit Shemesh.) Several hospitals have not had a single new coronavirus patient in recent days, the Channel 12 TV report also said and were repurposing virus wards back into general treatment centers, though they were ready to return them to COVID-19 centers if the need arose. Jerusalem’s Shaare Zedek Medical Center has closed four out of its six coronavirus wards. (VFI News)
