A Swedish woman in her fifties has died after contracting a severe case of E.coli in Germany.

She's the first Swedish victim and the first person outside of Germany to die from the outbreak.

41 Swedes, all adults, have been infected, with 15 of those experiencing complications in the form of the more severe Hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS).

New tests in Germany have also placed doubt on the original source of the bug, as they have been unable to find any trace of the bacteria on the first suspects, imported cucumbers from Spain.
