Day 197 of self-isolation - the second wave in Israel

The second wave in Israel

Israel did very well in the first wave of Covid, experiencing less than 10 deaths per day at the peak, and 600 new cases per day.

Not so good in the second wave. The seven day moving average of deaths per day now is 30 with new infections per day at 6000.

So the deaths per infection in the first wave was 1.7%, and in the second wave 0.5%. This is the same thing we've been seeing elsewhere; the second wave is a lot less deadly than the first, because we've learned treatments that ameliorate the disease.


  1. I have relatives living in Israel. Not rich ones in Hertzeliya, either.

    You know nothing, mate.
