EHEC bacteria case in Helsinki daycare centre

A case of EHEC bacteria has been found at a daycare centre in the Lapinlahti district of Helsinki. Officials discovered the case at around noon yesterday as a result of routine checks.
The daycare centre would not say whether the victim was a child or a staff member.
Authorities have not yet determined whether the bacteria are the same strain that caused the deadly German outbreak. So far, only one case in Finland has been linked to the cases in Germany.
The National Institute for Health and Welfare (THL) says further data on the nature of the bacterial infection could be released later on Friday.
