Israel logged more than 6,500 positive cases Monday, the highest daily rate in months, according to Health Ministry figures. More than 100 cities across the country are now operating under their strongest protocols, forcing some students back to remote learning if they have been exposed. Israeli epidemiologists said this week that they expect the omicron variant, which appears to be more infectious but cause less serious illness, to hospitalize about 3 out of every 1,000 infected people.
