Five Israelis contracted typhoid fever while travelling in Nepal, health officials said Saturday. The youths, who are being treated at Sheba Hospital in Tel Hashomer, considered the possibility that they became ill at the Beit Chabad in Kathmandu, where they had recently been dining. Health officials said it was possible that the disease was transferred to their food by one of the local employees. All five are suffering from fever and are being treated with antibiotics. Professor Eli Schwartz, head of the hospital's ward for travelers, recommends that anyone returning from Nepal in the last month with a fever report to a medical center to be tested for typhoid fever.
