Worst of E coli over, Germany says, as cases reported in France

By RFI  

The worst of the E coli outbreak is over, German Health Minister Daniel Bahr said on Wednesday ahead of a European meeting on the crisis. But one case has been confirmed in France and 12 other possible ones are reported.

The number of new infections from the E coli bacteria strain that has left at least 24 people dead was falling, Bahr said on television Wednesday, adding that “the worst of the illness is behind us”.

But he warned that there will probably be new cases and more deaths.
