Two children who attended the same nursery in Toulouse were hospitalized after bacterial contamination, says the Capitol on Tuesday confirming information from France 3 Occitanie. The mayor's office does not indicate which bacteria it is, but another source close to the case assures that the famous E. coli bacteria is involved.

The alert to the town hall was given on Friday, November 10 by the Regional Health Agency (ARS). The community immediately decided to inform all parents and close the school as of Monday, November 13, for "the time necessary to do the tests." The latter have "put out of the question" the diet" of the pitchouns. On the other hand, the results of the analyses of the germ samples taken from certain surfaces are not yet known at this stage.

The nursery is due to reopen on Wednesday

For the past ten days, the premises of the crèche have been disinfected with the support of a team specialized in the prevention of healthcare-associated infections. The town hall announces its reopening this Wednesday, December 22 "in all serenity". However, parents and the 18 staff members of the facility were asked to return to the walls for a negative screening test.

The ARS plans to communicate later today on the details of this case.
