Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was discharged from the Hadassah Medical Center in Jerusalem at midnight after he was rushed to the hospital with a fever earlier on Tuesday. The prime minister underwent a series of tests, which pointed to a minor upper respiratory infection.
According to Netanyahu’s office, the doctors recommended that the prime minister rest and take medication for his infection. “Thank you all for your concern! I am on my way home,” Netanyahu tweeted as he was discharged from the hospital. “I’m certain a bit of rest and hot soup will sort the matter out.”
Netanyahu came down with an infection two weeks ago. Due to feeling unwell throughout last week, the police postponed a planned questioning session as part of the ongoing investigation against him. Netanyahu’s personal doctor estimated that the prime minister has not fully completed his recovery period, and therefore his symptoms have worsened.
