Meningococcal infection: Bacterial aggregates form thick honey-like liquid that flows through blood vessels

Bacterial aggregates in blood vessels appear to facilitate the progression of the disease. Even if treatment is administered rapidly, the mortality rate due to meningococcal infections remains very high.
