Netanyahu discharged from hospital
The hospital says his illness was most likely a recurrence of his throat infection, but it could have developed into pneumonia; premier tweets he is 'certain some rest and warm soup will sort everything out', Haaretz reports.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was taken to the hospital Tuesday evening due to a high fever and a cough.
Later on Tuesday night, his bureau stated that while the premier will go through several tests he will not be hospitalized and is expected to be released home.
Netanyahu later tweeted to assure everyone that he was indeed doing well. "Thank you to everyone for the concern! I'm on my way home, and am certain that some rest and warm soup will sort everything out. Good night," he wrote in Hebrew on his official Twitter handle.
A message released by his office noted that Netanyahu "went through a series of tests at the Hadassah Ein Karem hospital, accompanied by his personal physician Dr. Berkowitz and cared for by hospital doctors Dr. Alon Hershkow, Prof. Alon Mozes and Dr. Asher Shalmon."
According to his office, "the prime minister came to the hospital because he suffered from a high fever and a cough. He finished the series of tests and will be released to his home tonight."
"The checkups attest to a minor infection in his upper airways. The doctors recommended that the prime minister rest and take medicine to treat his condition."
