Escherichia coli infections: how they are contracted
This bacterium is generally found in water or food that is contaminated and potentially contagious and dangerous.
Once in circulation, in fact, it leads to a whole series of symptoms that can be both mild and severe and that in the most extreme cases, especially in fragile subjects, can also become very dangerous. In the most extreme cases it can in fact come to the need for blood transfusions and in others rarer but in any case not to forget a kidney transplant due to the damage it can cause.
To avoid it, you should always pay close attention to the hygiene of the water you drink and the food you eat. In particular, especially in summer, it is very important to pay attention to the cleaning of fruit and vegetables and to the consumption of unpasteurized milk and uncooked or inadequately preserved meat or fish. Finally, it is very important that those who handle food wash their hands frequently, thus ensuring hygiene.

However, these will be evaluated by the doctor based on the symptoms and reactions of the patients. Only when strictly necessary, will they be prescribed. Often, this happens after an antibiogram able to indicate which are the most suitable to fight the bacterium as quickly as possible.
