    "A preliminary analysis pointed to possible reasons for this strain of E. coli's extreme aggressiveness and resistance to antibiotics," it said in a statement from Hamburg, the epicentre of the outbreak.

    "The data culled will make it possible in future to develop better molecular tools for a precise diagnosis of the strain behind the outbreak.

    "In addition, it can now be researched how this new type of E. coli strain developed, why the strain can spread at great speed and why the illness it unleashes is so serious."
