Australia : Toddler gets meningococcal disease

Via ABC Online :

" A two-year-old boy from Hervey Bay in southern Queensland has tested positive for meningococcal disease.

Queensland Health says he arrived at the Hervey Bay Hospital on Sunday night and was sent to Brisbane's Royal Children's Hospital.

Tests on Tuesday confirmed he has meningococcal disease.

Staff, children and parents at the boy's day care centre have been notified and given antibiotics.

A four-year-old girl and a 66-year-old woman from the Fraser Coast region have died from the disease this year."
