20,000 Israelis Could Die of Coronavirus


That's according to a top Israeli health official, reported Ynet News.

"Some of these people would have likely died from other diseases due to their underlying health conditions," said Health Ministry Deputy Director Prof. Itamar Grotto. "That number [potential 20,000] would be added to the annual mortality rate in Israel, which is about 40,000 people a year."

The number of cases in Israel has stabilized at about 200 a day, Grotto said, and the government has ordered new test kits to provide quick diagnosis for the sick. Israel also plans to launch an app that will allow officials to pinpoint virus carriers and warn those who have been in close proximity.
