E. coli-killer from Germany could fall into the sea.
Deadly intestinal bacteria have been discovered in the waters of Germany and spread with extraordinary rapidity, as noted by German experts. A run-off of many rivers that flow into the country directly in the Baltic Sea. One of these days the bacteria E. Coli were in one of the streams of Hesse, then in other bodies of water, and soon the whole of Germany will be a ban on swimming in the rivers. Because of the risk of contracting E. coli Ministry of Environment of Germany recommends against swimming in rivers, and gardeners — not water fruits and vegetables with water from rivers and streams.
— While it is not known how the bacteria got into the river in Germany — says PhD, an employee of the Atlantic Branch of the Shirshov Institute of Oceanology of the Russian Academy of Sciences Elena Yezhov. — Also, we do not know whether these bacteria live in sea water or in it for them fatal. So you can not say that these organisms may spread from the rivers of Germany in the Baltic Sea.
Anyway, a potential health hazard exists in our region.
— I think that the water route of infection residents of Kaliningrad and the region does not threaten, — the Chief Medical Officer of the region Tatiana Grunicheva. — In Germany, most likely, intestinal bacteria got into the river through the sewer and municipal discharges. Rather, in river water, this wand does not live long. For us, the main danger is contact-household transmission is new to human infection. I note that one of the sources of infection in Germany became infected cook! Encourage everyone to comply strictly with the rules of personal hygiene, wash hands, do not use imported raw vegetables! What sways swimming in our waters, then it is allowed, where we carried out the study. Swim in rivers and lakes, as well as the Baltic Sea can be if not a ban.
