90 percent of new Covid-19 cases in Israel reported to be Delta variant

In the news on Israel’s Channel 12 television, it was stated that although most of the new cases were caused by the Delta variant, the number of those who had the disease was lower than the previous wave.

It was stated that in the third wave, which started in December 2020 in the country, 20-30 out of every 1000 cases had a severe disease, while in the Delta variant, it was 3-5 people.

Although the news does not provide information on the reason for the lower number of severe patients in the Delta variant compared to the previous wave, nearly 55 percent of the population in Israel has received two doses of the Covid-19 vaccine.
