In a memo to hospitals on Sunday, Sigal Liberant-Taub, head of the health ministry’s general medicine division, wrote that the past few weeks saw a rise in the number of new COVID-19 cases as well as in the number of hospitalized patients, severely ill patients, and in the number of staff who are in isolation following exposure to COVID-19 patients, Xinhua news agency reported.

“The instruction is to prepare for the immediate opening of the (coronavirus) units,” she wrote.

Israel saw on Saturday an increase of 294 COVID-19 cases, the health ministry said, taking the total to 4,669 with 305 deaths.
