The Environment Ministry of the state of Hesse announced that the deadly O 104:H 4 strain of the bacteria had been found in the Erlenbach stream in the north-east of the city.
A more harmless E. coli strain had been found in a vegetable farm close by the stream last week, when lettuce was apparently contaminated by water used for washing. Following routine checks, the more dangerous E. coli form was then found in the stream.

first it was lettuce, then cucumbers, then sprouts...now a river. bollocks i say. there are quite a few cases now, around 3804 since i last checked.
fox news was on, and they had a scrolling update, saying the amount of cases was going down. when they listed the new number (3804) it was higher than what they had previously said. all the while maintaining that the amount was lessening.
