Deeply meditate on the following numbers.
According to the most recent report out today, after a sudden increase in cases reported over the previous week (up to 504 cases in 24 hrs on Thursday), as of Shabbat, there has been a more downward trend with 398 cases being reported, and it's down again today to 183.
There has also been a decline in the number of serious cases (from 45 to 39 over the same time period) while those in moderate condition increased from 50 to 60.
There are currently 211 people hospitalized nationwide with COVID-19 and 22 (down from 24) are on respirators.
Please note that even while the number of infected was increasing, likely due to increased testing (a certain percentage of which will be false positives!), the numbers considered serious and critical (on vents) remained stable throughout.
A grand total of 318 people have died of COVID-19 in Israel since statistics began to be counted (at least four months).
Out of a total population of 8,655,535, that is a percentage of 0.004. Statistically speaking, that is a very negligible number. By comparison, in 2016, 11,077 people in Israel died of cancer, lo aleynu!
Can anyone explain to me how these following headlines can be justified in light of what we see from these statistics?
