The agency said that this fifty cases could be “grouped together in about fifteen sources of contamination”, especially family, “subject to the results of investigations still in progress to cross-reference the data and trace the chains of contamination”, she clarified.

The incidence rate is now 95.6 per 100,000 inhabitants, a figure “higher than the national rate” and increasing “by 35% in less than three weeks”, warns the ARS.
