New record of daily cases

San Francisco Chronicle - - CORONAVIRU­S PANDEMIC -

Is­rael has re­ported a new record level of daily cases of coro­n­avirus, shortly be­fore govern­ment of­fi­cials were to meet to dis­cuss tight­en­ing a new na­tion­wide lock­down. The Health Min­istry re­ported 6,861 new cases on Wed­nes­day as a rag­ing out­break showed no signs of slow­ing. Is­rael, a coun­try of some 9 mil­lion peo­ple, now has one of the world’s high­est rates of coro­n­avirus on a per capita ba­sis, and health of­fi­cials say hos­pi­tals are quickly ap­proach­ing ca­pac­ity.
