Two cases of bacterial meningitis (inflammation of the tissue surrounding the brain) were recently diagnosed in children in a day care center in Bnei Brak. They were given antibiotic treatment, and their conditions have improved.

All the children who attend the center were also given prophylactic treatment after their parents were informed to prevent them from getting infected, as did the staff. Doctors and nurses from the Tel Aviv District Health Office were sent to the day care center to explain the disease and ways to prevent its spread.

The ministry said on Monday that people outside the facility and those do not live in the same house with someone who took sick need not be concerned about being infected.
