A new mutated strain of E. coli is responsible for a large, deadly outbreak in Europe. The outbreak is centered in Germany, but cases are appearing around Europe in those who traveled to Germany. Since the outbreak began, over 1,500 people have been infected and 17 have died. No source for the outbreak has been identified, but officials are recommending that individuals should refrain from eating raw cucumbers, tomatoes, and lettuce.
Not long ago, one of our sources at the World Health Organization (WHO) told me that China is a big concern right now. It seems that China has developed their own H1N1 vaccine that has not been seen or approved by the WHO. If that wasn’t enough, China has only manufactured enough vaccine to inoculate 5% of its citizens. This means that even high priority groups such as pregnant women and people at high risk will not receive a vaccine.
The outcome could be devastating.
