The number of active coronavirus cases in Israel has surpassed 5,000, the Health Ministry announced Monday evening after 274 new cases were diagnosed over the last 24 hours.

200 coronavirus patients are hospitalized across Israel, 45 of whom are in serious condition. One patient died over the last day, raising the death toll to 307.

In light of the increase in coronavirus morbidity within the military, the IDF issued new guidelines Monday evening to prevent the spread of the virus among soldiers.

Among the guidelines are limitations on the number of soldiers who can be together in one place. Soldiers will be in small units of up to 10 people called 'capsules.' The maximum number of soldiers who can be in an enclosed space together is 50, and the maximum number of soldiers who can be together in an open space is 100.
