Coronavirus in Israel: Less than 1,000 active cases in the whole country

Less than 1,000 coronavirus active cases remain in the whole Israel, according to a Sunday morning update of the Health Ministry.
The last time the country registered a lower number of people positive to the virus was March 22, 2020 – 945 compared to the current 985. It was the beginning of the pandemic, even before the significant restrictions had been put in place. In the following months the cases climbed up. At the peak of the second and third waves, in October and January, Israel registered over 70,000 and 80,000 active cases respectively. While restrictive measures helped lower the numbers, the country never saw a situation as good as the one today.
Thanks to its successful vaccination campaign – about 5 million fully vaccinated people over a total population of 9.3 millions – Israel is currently one of the leading nations in the world in the fight against COVID. To make a comparison, Belgium, with some 11 million people, currently has some 106,000 active cases, Austria with 9 million, some 17,000 and Norway with 5 million some 26,000.
“Israel presents: How vaccines beat COVID-19 (for now),” Eran Segal, a computational biology professor at the Weizmann Institute of Science, tweeted on Sunday. “Since mid-Jan peak:  99% fewer cases (now ~5 daily cases per million) 98% fewer critically ill (now ~0.4 daily per million) 98% fewer deaths (now ~0.2 daily per million).”
“Life is back to normal, very few restrictions remain,” he added.
For the past two weeks, Israel registered less than 100 new cases per day and the percentage of tests returning a positive result remained below 0.3%. In previous months, thousands of new cases were identified daily, with a positive rate that climbed as high as 10% and more.
In the past week, a total of ten people succumbed to the virus. When the pandemic was raging dozens of deaths sometimes occurred in 24 hours.

Some 84 patients remain in serious condition, similar the number of previous days, but just a fraction of the 1,100 and more serious patients registered in January as well as of 700-800 patients that the Israeli hospital system was said to be able to handle without compromising on the quality of the care.
