EHEC, Germany, Spain

The latest EHEC outbreak (see BBC) in Germany, where I live, is scary. I have heard about a lot of people who are in intensive care unit. Kidney problems and the nervous system goes wild. Yet nobody I know personally has been affected. Strangely though, although we have the most cases in my area Schleswig-Holstein (northern Germany), many people seem to take it not very seriously. I do, much more, than the yearly flu or anything else, because there have been many deaths.

To the case of Germany wrongly declaring that cucumbers from Spain had been the cause I really thing our government should pay compensation. But I think this is not the right time to discuss. Yet the source of the infection is unknown, which makes the thing even more scary.
