Health Ministry epidemiologists are investigating the apparent food poisoning of nearly four dozen guests at two hotels in Tiberias over Rosh Hashana. They were hosptialized in light condition at Poriya Medical Center just outside the city after complaining of diarrhea, vomiting and dizziness.

The victims ranged in age from a baby to an octogenarian. The epidemiologists were sent by the district health office to the Bali Hotel and the Leonardo Club Hotel in Tiberias to take samples of the food and conduct other tests.
