20% of Israeli babies born by cesarean

This is a very short report, with no details on the breakdown of emergency versus elective or planned cesareans, and no context in terms of whether there is a difference in rate in the private sector compared with public hospitals, but informs us that:

"Every fifth child in Israel is delivered by a Caesarean Section operation, according to a report published in the Hebrew-language daily Haaretz."
