E.coli O157 & Haemolytic Uraemic Syndrome

Latest deaths in Germany

27th June 2011

Germany has reported another three deaths in its E. coli outbreak - bringing the total to at least 47.

The Robert Koch Institute, Germany's disease control centre, today said that 46 deaths have now been reported in the country. One person has died in Sweden, and officials say one death in the U.S. may be linked to the outbreak.

The number of new infections has declined significantly over recent weeks but overall numbers are still rising - due largely to delays in notification.

The disease control centre says 3,801 people have been reported sick in Germany. That includes 834 suffering from HUS, a complication that can lead to kidney failure.

A further 119 cases have been reported in 15 other countries.
