Dozens of People Infected by Dangerous Bacteria in Hospitals

The spokesman of the Albert Schweitzer Hospital in Dordrecht has stated that at present, twenty-eight people have been infected by the resistant hospital bacteria, VRE. Furthermore, another 1,200 people who have either stayed in the hospital in recent weeks or have had contact with such patients have been called up to undergo tests. The VRE bacteria is not dangerous to healthy people, but sick or very weak people can become infected, and in the worst case it leads to death.
