Lack of COVID tests expected in Israel

A shortage of COVID tests is expected in Israel

Newspaper & quot; Israel Hayom & quot; reports, with reference to sources in the Ministry of Health, that tests for coronavirus are ending in Israel.

According to a spokesman for the Ministry of Health, this week “ Israel will carry out the maximum possible number of PCR tests, more than which to do will no longer be possible. ''

Due to the scale of infection with the Omicron strain the authorities will have no choice but to limit the number of PCR tests provided. They probably won't be done to people without symptoms. PCR tests will primarily do the elderly and the chronically ill.

Israel can do 170-200 thousand tests a day, on Thursday last week, December 30, 160 thousand were done. In light of reaching the limit of testing possibilities, at least the abolition of testing for vaccinated people is being discussed.
