Intestinal infection: three EHEC cases in kindergarten in Ingolstadt

Dangerous intestinal infection In Ingolstadt, Bavaria, three cases of dangerous EHEC intestinal infection occurred in a kindergarten. According to a message from the dpa news agency, the daycare center has been closed since last Friday. Since then, there was a suspicion, as the city administration confirmed on Monday. According to regional media, the children are in the hospital. All parents of the affected kindergarten were contacted by the Ingolstadt health office. The city has also set up a telephone hotline.

When symptoms appear to the doctor EHEC pathogens occur in different variants, which are not all equally dangerous for the human organism. Some of them only cause harmless EHEC symptoms such as diarrhea, abdominal pain, nausea and vomiting. With more dangerous infections, however, patients can experience far more serious complaints. These include, for example, a bloody diarrhea-like bowel movement or kidney damage that is associated with kidney pain. Parents whose children have the symptoms of fever and diarrhea should seek medical treatment immediately with their offspring, it said. The city also advised siblings in the affected families from attending school as a precaution. (ad)
