Fourth Person Dies from Infested Salmon

A fourth person has died from eating smoked salmon infested with salmonella. This was announced by the National Institute for Public Health and Environment (RIVM). For another patient who died, investigations are still underway to see whether he also died from the salmon. In total, 1,063 people have been infected by the Salmonella-Thompson bacteria. Last week, 37 new cases were found. It can be that the real number of sick people is much higher, because there is no obligation to inform the health services.
