Israel has reported a record number of new corona infections. In the past 24 hours, 1681 cases were added. That is by far the highest number since the beginning of the corona epidemic.
In the middle of May, there were no more than a few dozen a day.
Of nearly 26,000 people tested in one day, 6.5 percent turned out to be positive, which is also a record.
More than 41,200 infections have been registered in the country to date. Almost half of those involved were cured, more than 360 people died.
Meanwhile, criticism of Prime Minister Netanyahu is growing. He would have relaxed the corona measures too soon.
At the beginning of the crisis, he was still praised for his approach. Over 20 percent of the labour force is now unemployed.
