Meningitis scare at nurseries in Manchester25th March 2011
Around 200 children in Greater Manchester have been given antibiotics after five developed the infection which leads to meningitis.
The children, who attended nurseries in Leigh and the Tyldsley/Worsley area, were admitted to hospital with the meningococcal infection. More than 50 members of staff were also given medication as a precaution and the Health Protection Agency (HPA) has moved to assure parents the infection does not pass easily from person to person. The cases were first brought to the HPA’s attention in February.
