Israel Surpasses US in Coronavirus Patients per Capita
Israel has surpassed the US in coronavirus patients per capita on Monday.
There are 20,562 per one million people infected with coronavirus in Israel today.
“Israel has been one of the leading countries in the world in infected people per capita for a while,” said Prof. Ronit Calderon-Margalit from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem School of Public Health.
Calderon-Margalit went on to explain that Israel is seeing an increase in infections that cannot be explained by more testing. “The rate of those who test positive is approximately 11% and that is high in relation to the rest of the world,” she said.
Israel is also above the global average for coronavirus deaths per capita. The national average is 124 deaths per million and Israel has 137 death per million, according to N12.
There has been an increase in infections in many Western European countries, at the same time as school systems opened. (JPost / VFI News)
