Pathogen Allergy Risk Of KIDs Toy Blow Bubbles

Shocking how something that seems so harmless LIKE KIDs Toy Blow Bubbles can be so deadly.

And that’s what’s happening home and abroad.

It’s not even like you have to buy them for your kids or you to be put at risk

Very scary really AND glad to say he’s ok now

Rather than everybody going into panic mode maybe there are sensible solutions to a potential problem with pathogens:

Panic mode? I hardly think that the problem still exists after it being published by a consumer council over 2 years ago.

Spain have a very reliable and efficient National health system similar to our own in the way it is funded,EU citizens can obtain their services for free under the reciprocal agreement subject to the production of the EHIC card if they require emergency treatment whilst visiting .

i hope that this is maintained given the issue of Brexit but i very much doubt it will be.

Spain have trouble maintaining EU agreement as is AM sure U.K. will still tho

In crisis do SICK really want to argue it out TO make sure the recive National Health treatment in Spain and guess lot have to or stump up cost

Please don't make statements that are not based on fact with regard to Spain as this may deter people from travelling within the current arrangement to a very beautiful and civilised country.

i enclosed the link for guidance should your family continue with their continental adventures.of course most sensible people will take out travel health insurance when it is affordable as a backup.

But have to think of kids BUT that would not make me as bad as those trying it on.

I agree on that .. dose that count

I concur. I’m in Spain as I type and visited a Spanish GP here yesterday with a fairly minor ailment but which requires medication. Cost... free upon production of passport and EHIC card due to reciprocal agreement.
