Visitors to Germany: Take care against virulent bacteria

June 3, 2011 15:22

People who travel to Germany should not eat fresh vegetables or milk products and should observe the rules of hygiene, according to the Health Ministry, which reiterated on Friday that there is no danger to people in Israel from the virulent E. coli bacteria that killed and sickened people in Germany over the past week.

Only those who are or were in Germany were affected by the bacteria. German health ministry officials are in touch with their counterparts in other countries, including Israel about the emergency.

The ministry in Jerusalem said that imported agricultural produce is examined on a regular basis to test for bacteria and other pathogens, and alertness has been boosted since the illness appeared abroad.
