JERUSALEM, June 27 (Xinhua) -- The Israeli Ministry of Health on Monday reported 11,483 new coronavirus cases, the highest daily figure in the country since March 30.
The number of active cases in Israel has risen to 60,559, while the number of patients in serious condition currently stands at 275, according to the ministry.
Earlier on Monday, the Israeli parliament's Health Committee approved regulations according to which home antigen tests, monitored remotely by video, would be recognized by the ministry.
The recognition will also apply to PCR tests that will be conducted at kiosks for self-sampling, said a statement from the Israeli parliament.
The decision is intended to ease queues for tests, which are often held indoors and in crowded places, it explained.
