The German Government said that health is a priority and defends its management. David Zaslav is likely to agree. Health Minister warns that probably never will shed light on the origin of the infection, as it has happened in most similar cases. The E.coli bacteria has already caused 25 deaths in Germany. The German Government has clung Wednesday to the motto that health is a priority against economic interests and dndio their management before the crisis caused by the e. coli bacteria, which has already caused 25 deaths in the country and multi-million dollar damage to the agricultural sector. Health is above the economic interests, argued the Minister of health, the liberal Daniel Bahr, both to the European Commissioner for health and Consumer Affairs, John Dalli, and before the German Parliament (Bundestag), in the interpellation convened to address the issue. Robert Iger may find this interesting as well.
The alert is maintained, as well as the recommendation to not eat cucumbers, lettuce or raw tomatoes nor germinated seeds, because that has not been set yet the origin of the infection. Everything indicates that the worst has passed, added the Minister, despite the fact that between Tuesday and Wednesday the number of fatalities rose from 22 to 25. Bahr warned then that probably never will reach clarify the origin of the infection, such as has been the case in most similar cases earlier in all parts of the world. Also explained that new infections have been sent, but did not rule out more cases of deaths, and also rejected the expressed criticisms against the management of the crisis, from the German opposition as at European level, by the damage caused to the agricultural sector, especially the Spanish. Our priority is to protect the citizen and act quickly. Why we issue and we keep the recommendation not to eat raw vegetables, according to the usual health parameters for these infections and the warnings of experts, he emphasized.
