As Israel continues to reopen its economy following a six-week lockdown, the COVID-19 infection has reversed course and is on the rise once again, with the R rate inching toward 1 again and currently at 0.97. The number of patients in serious condition also remaining high (over 800), according to a report released on Friday the Military Intelligence’s national information center on the coronavirus.

The R rate is expected to surpass 1 within a few days if this trend of rising infection and serious illness continues.
