Germany reported its first death from a virulent super-bacterium that has spread through the north of the country in just a week, possibly via fresh produce sold in supermarkets.



A sample bottle containing E. coli bacteria is seen at the Health Protection Agency in north London



Hundreds of people have fallen gravely ill from the new sub-strain of E. coli. It causes internal bleeding, diarrhoea and kidney failure and is partly resistant to antibiotics, scientists said.

One person has died in Germany after contracting a dangerous strain of E. coli. The outbreak, whose cause is currently not known, is concentrated in the north of the country. Over 400 confirmed or suspected cases have already been recorded.

The current outbreak involves a strain known as enterohemorrhagic E. coli (EHEC). Symptoms of an infection include bloody diarrhea and stomach cramps. In some cases, an infection can cause a disease called haemolytic uraemic syndrome (HUS), which can lead to kidney failure and even death.

As if we dont have enough to worry about, what with the Earthquakes, tornadoes, tsunamis,comets,astroids,pole shifts,sun flairs, 2012, rapture. Now we have to worry about a new bug.... Which new disaster will be the one to break humanity's collective back? At some point we will be hit with one to many, and it will boil over into WW3.

1 83-year-old woman died, out of 400 infected. I don't call that much of a threat. These stories are just fear mongering from MSM.

Yeah.. but if an old frail lady could die.. WE COULD ALL DIE TOMORROW!

Clearly what we need is a World Health Organization declaration of Epidemic and our governments to order billions of dollars worth of vaccines NOW!!!

Think of the children!
