Is there an obligation to report when I am stung?
There is no obligation to notify after the pure sting, as a sting does not automatically mean infection with one of the pathogens mentioned. According to the Infection Protection Act, there is an obligation to report by name if there is a suspicion of disease, illness or death from virus-induced haemorrhagic fever. In the case of direct and indirect evidence of haemorrhagic fever pathogens, the obligation to report by name also exists, if the evidence indicates an acute infection. However, the notification must be made by your attending physician.
