Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu warned that Israel must be prepared to treat 1,500 coronavirus patients in serious condition.

The number of patients in serious condition rose to 763 today. About 3,500 new coronavirus cases were diagnosed yesterday. However, only half the usual number of tests were performed.

The Corona Cabinet will convene on Wednesday to discuss the health system's action plan and set goals for a gradual exit strategy from the current lockdown.
