Children from a Minimes nursery in Toulouse were hospitalized following poisoning by E.coli bacteria, the origin of which remains unknown to this day.
A daycare center will reopen this Wednesday in Toulouse after a serious health problem that occurred on Friday, November 10. Two children were hospitalized following contamination by E. coli bacteria.
Toulouse town hall has taken the decision to close the nursery from Monday November 13 to Tuesday November 21 inclusive, the time necessary to carry out the analyses, in conjunction with the ARS and the departmental laboratory.
Food out of cause
“The first results exclude the feeding of toddlers. Additionally, samples were taken from different surfaces where the germs found are analyzed to determine if they are the cause of children’s illnesses. Toulouse town hall will inform parents of the results as soon as they are known,” the community indicated this Tuesday morning.
The Toulouse town hall indicates that it has reinforced all the cleaning protocols of the nursery with the intervention of the CPIAS (Support Center for the Prevention of Nosocomial Infections) and the 18 agents of the structure. Deliveries of additional equipment were made to allow the total disinfection of the establishment.
Reopening this Wednesday
On Wednesday, November 22, the nursery will be able to open its doors again with complete peace of mind. A screening test was requested from parents for all children and that of agents is in progress, specifies the Toulouse town hall. The return to the establishment of children and agents is conditional on a negative result to avoid a new outbreak of contamination.
