I preface technical lectures that I give to my professional Institution (The IET) by warnings about meningitis using the example of a young lady from near my home who died 2 days after contracting it. Students, parents and grand-parents normally in audence. So far as I know, I am the only engineer who does this. Does anyone have statistics available for deaths (student and general public) in University towns, especially Bristol, Bath, Exeter and Plymouth? Always useful to qote real numbers!
