Israel could see up to nearly 40 percent of the population infected by coronavirus during the current wave, Prime Minister Naftali Bennett said Sunday, as testing facilities nationwide buckled.

“Data presented at the cabinet meeting indicates that here, in Israel, between two to four million citizens in total will be infected during this current wave,” Bennett wrote on his Twitter account.

A country of just 9.4 million, Israel has seen infections nearly quadrupled over the past week compared to the previous one. The health ministry reported 17,518 new infections on Saturday.

A lack of testing sites created huge pressure on the existent ones, causing the government to revise its testing policy and as of Friday designate the PCR tests, the most accurate, only for people at risk and over 60.

Anyone else is to take an antigen test, whether at home or applied by a medic.
