Human rotaviruses belonging to genotype P9, of probable feline origin, which included both G3 and G1 serotypes, were detected in 3.8% of children shedding rotaviruses who attended sick fund clinics throughout Israel. None were detected in children admitted to hospitals because of severe diarrhea. In contrast, the relative prevalences of genotypes P8 and P4 were similar between the two groups.
