But Israel did 112k tests yesterday. They are really ramping up, so numbers aren't exactly equivalent to the numbers with less testing.

Israel leads the world in vaccinations per capita, but also in essential workers per capita
someone asked me what ive been doing since covid, i said "im not really sure myself, but i can assure u that it is essential"

someone i know went yesterday to get tested, she said the place was packed and half the ppl there were showing heavy symptoms. she turned around and fled.

Hospitalizations donít care about testing. And theyíre just as high. And rising much faster due to the mutation.

7.3% positivity rate.
I can't believe people are still making this argument

The year is 2033, the world is in midst of its 57th wave of covid; people are saying "maybe this time the numbers are high because of too much testing".

41% over 60 for their first dose already!
Should get to ~85% by the time we start losing slots to second dose (assuming the Moderns shipment actually materializes)
https://www.timesofisrael.com/liveblog_entry/55-of-israelis-over-60-have-received-first-dose-of-vaccine/
Now at 55%
Reports are that vaccination drive slowed significantly today. 100K Moderna vaccines arriving Thursday, not really enough to make a meaningful dent

Should be 60% of 60+ by tonight, + 12.5% of 60+ who has covid already, getting close to the point where there arenít any more 60+ willing and able to get vaccinated. In an Ohio hospital only 40% agreed to be vaccinated

I think the 55% includes today (as the total vaccinations in the post is 1.5 million, which is around 120K more than yesterday)

Additionally, Israelis who have not already bought a plane ticket to travel abroad during the two-week period will not be allowed to fly, the PMO said. Kan News reported that the government will also reintroduce the obligation for all arrivals to Israel to enter state-run hotels for quarantine of up to two weeks.

It doesn't seem to matter because that nobody is actually listening to the rules or going into the hotels I've read hundreds of stories of just really nothing being actually enforced.
