According to Israel's Health Ministry, 69 cases of the disease have been reported in the Tel Aviv region since the start of 2012, most in the latter half of the year. That compares to just seven in 2011.
Tel Aviv has recently been suffering an outbreak of Hepatitis A, and the Health Ministry believes the source may be vegetables sold in open-air markets in the south of the city.
