The three-year-old girl’s angina degenerated into an invasive infection with strep A, the bacteria responsible for angina. Two other children, including a sibling of the victim, have been infected with the same bacteria and are in serious condition, local media report.

This is an extremely rare occurrence that alerts the health authorities. A three-year-old girl from Landes died on November 28 of an invasive infection with streptococcus A, a bacterium responsible for a type of angina.reported Friday, December 2 France Blue Landes, Free lunch or The Dispatch.

The child was first treated at Dax hospital before being transferred to the University Hospital Center (CHU) in Bordeaux due to the worsening of his state of health. Two other children, including a sibling of the victim, were infected with the same bacteria and are in serious condition, according to various media.

A situation that pushes the regional health agency of Nouvelle-Aquitaine to open a crisis unit with Public Health France. “In 99% of cases, there is no difficulty with angina”, reminds France Bleu Landes Didier Couteaud, the representative of the ARS in the Landes. “However, in some cases, the disease can degenerate and can affect vital functions. This was the case.” This is why, “we warn all the families of the sector and we remind them that if there are symptoms linked to angina, they must consult a doctor quickly. All the doctors in the Macs sector are also seized, and we ask them to monitor the cases that there could be”, describes Didier Couteaud.

At least six children under the age of ten have died in the UK due to an invasive Strep A bacteria infection in recent weeks. Symptoms of infections caused by strep A range from fever and vomiting to skin rash and sore throat.
