Government reportedly readying for more than 2400 serious COVID cases – The Times of Israel

The government is reportedly preparing itself to be able to handle 2,400 serious coronavirus cases within a month.
According to Ynet, ministers discussed a plan yesterday to hire more doctors, nurses and other hospital personnel in order to prepare for a sharp rise in serious hospitalized COVID cases. Currently, 694 people in Israel with COVID are hospitalized and 400 are in serious condition.
The report indicates that the government believes that by the end of August, there could be 2,400 people hospitalized and 1,200 in serious condition, and by the 10th of September, those figures could jump to 4,800 in hospital and 2,400 serious.
As The Times of Israel’s environment reporter, I try to convey the facts and science behind climate change and environmental degradation, to explain – and critique – the official policies affecting our future, and to describe Israeli technologies that can form part of the solution.
I am passionate about the natural world and disheartened by the dismal lack of awareness to environmental issues shown by most of the public and politicians in Israel.
I’m proud to be doing my part to keep Times of Israel readers properly informed about this vital subject – which can and does effect policy change.
