This week it was reported that a pregnant woman died in Pretoria, South Africa, as a result of Listeriosis, a food-borne disease. At that stage the Gauteng Health Ministry had confirmed that there were over five hundred cases that were detected this year, and over thirty deaths recorded in the last eleven months. It is still unclear what the source of Listeriosis is and there are still investigations that are underway under the auspices of South Africa’s health department.
