Israel saw 1,960 new coronavirus cases on Wednesday

On Thursday morning, the Health Ministry tallied 32,505 people actively ill with covid-19, including 331 in serious condition. The death toll mounted to 491.  Some retirement homes for the aged have asked the ministry to approve the opening of special wards for occupants who suffer coronavirus infection when the disease is mild to medium. This would ease the burden on the hospitals, except for severe cases, and save other patients from the ordeal of removal from their familiar surroundings.
