EHEC outbreak is considered to be over

The Robert Koch-Institute reported sporadic cases of EHEC-infection/HUS related to the current outbreak. The last onset of disease to be attributed to the outbreak was reported on 4 July 2011 and is hence three weeks back. Since that date no new cases of the disease related to the outbreak have been notified to the RKI and therefore the RKI considers the outbreak to be over. For more details see the press release from July 26th 2011.
