More than 20 million people across Europe are now at risk of catching a skin infection caused by the superbug E. coli O157:H7, as the virus sweeps across Europe, according to a study released on Monday.
E. coli has been spreading across Europe for years, but this time it has struck the UK in a major outbreak, triggering a global lockdown.
The new research from the University of Bristol and the University College London, which was published in the medical journal Lancet, found that patients were almost three times more likely to contract the disease if they had received a face wash at home in the week before they became infected.
The study also found that a significant number of infections were linked to the skin care products used by some healthcare workers.
It comes after an outbreak of E.coli in the UK was linked to a new strain of the disease that had been isolated in a patient’s home.
The outbreak had been linked to people who had previously used products containing salicylic acid, a salve made from alcohol.
Ecoli has become a global threat due to the rise of new, antibiotic-resistant strains.
Since the outbreak of the coronavirus in the US in 2014, the number of people with E. coli has increased by a staggering 3.6 million.
The UK has recorded its worst E. Coli outbreak in 50 years.
The outbreak is spreading across the UK because it is so widespread, with patients infected with the new strain.
Experts warn that the spread of E-coli is only going to get worse as the disease gets more resistant.
“This is not going to be the last case of this,” Dr Sarah Williams, from the World Health Organization (WHO), said at a news conference on Monday, adding that there are “a lot of countries where E.
Coli is going to emerge as the second biggest killer of people.”
