Is everyone just bad at math? They are testing 50k to 100k more people daily than previously so the number of detected positives is just a really bad comparison. Hospitalizations, ICU, and deaths are all down from previous peaks.

Makes for sensational headlines though.

Yup
Since when did number of infections become the benchmark? Shouldn't we care about about deaths and serious illness?

By the way, although 3 million Israelis are triple vaxxed already, they are only 2% of the new cases. Unvaccinated are 65%!!, while those without boosters are 29%.

Can someone even explain the argument as to why restrictions should be added? It's so obvious that Bennet is correct - is the MOH specifically suggesting this to make Bennet look good?

Numbers and positive percentage are plummeting bh.

Arabs are up to now to 45% of new infections. Charedim not surging, despite yom tov.

That's possible because of less testing now, no?

Less testing would not usually be associated with a drop off in percent positive like we are seeing now.

Coincidence that health officials were pushing for further restrictions as numbers were starting to ease? So that they could say their restrictions caused the numbers to go down?
