Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu discharged from hospital

According to Telegraph

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was released from hospital on Tuesday after suffering from a high fever and a cough, his office said.

Netanyahu said on Twitter: “I am on my way home. Sure some rest and hot soup will put things right.”

An official statement from his office said hospital tests indicated the prime minister was suffering from a mild viral infection of his upper respiratory tract.

“The doctors recommended him to rest and undergo medical treatment,” his office said in a statement, without giving details.

An earlier statement said Netanyahu’s personal physician believed the 68-year-old leader had not fully recovered from an illness two weeks ago and therefore decided he should undergo further tests in hospital.

Netanyahu fell ill in mid-March and cancelled his public schedule for five consecutive days.
