Hurghada in Egypt tops the global list of worst holiday locations for food poisoning, a recent study by British travel illness claim officials revealed.

According to the study by SickHolidays.com that highlights the world's food poisoning hotspots, a total of 380 cases of food poisoning were reported from Hurghada since the start of 2017.

The resort town topped the list because it accounted for nearly “95% of all Sick Holiday's claims from Egypt for that period”, Daily Mail reported.

Antalya in Turkey was fourth on this list, with 108 cases of food poisoning, while 83 cases were reported from Marrakesh in Morocco.

Hurghada is one of the favourite holiday spots for Britons, due to its affordability, with more than 60,000 visiting the coastal town in 2018.
