As of Tuesday evening, there are 15,728 confirmed coronavirus cases in Israel, while 210 patients have succumbed from the virus.

Of the latest number, 116 people are in serious condition, a drop of 8% over the past 24 hours, with 92 patients needing ventilator support, a drop of 5%.

The Health Ministry said there are currently 7,772 people currently infected with the pathogen, while 7,746 people have recovered from the disease.

A total of 334 people currently being treated in hospitals, while 4,664 are battling the virus at home. Some 1,709 are in specially designated hotels with another 1,065 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.
