Doctors increase caution over E.coli outbreak

Croatian Times

Croatian doctors have upped caution and are carefully screening people with symptoms that could correspond to an outbreak of E.coli that has caused 10 deaths in Germany.

Although there is not a single case reported in Croatia, doctors are more careful and are sending any patients with similar symptoms for additional urine and blood tests.  They are especially vigilant with children, the daily Jutarnji List writes.

Ten people have died in Germany from an outbreak believed to come from cucumbers infected through either cattle or human faeces. The origin of the cucumbers is not known, but some suspect Spain. Since they are also locally produced and imported from Austria, Hungary and Luxembourg, further investigation is needed to pinpoint the exact origin.

Germany’s producers from the north say that their vegetables are mainly from greenhouses where manure fertilizer is not used.

Experts say that there is a small possibility that the contamination could spread to Croatia through manure, as local farmers use it in much lower quantities.
