When it comes to having a wild night in Berlin, then the KitKatClub is one of those places that should probably be on your bucket list.
A range of parties are held at KitKatClub - they’re generally fairly queer and it’s generally a no-holds-barred kind of experience.
However a recent party at the KitKatClub took a turn for the worse when one of the guests developed symptoms of bacterial meningitis.
Meningitis is an infection of the meninges - the protective membranes that surround the brain and the spinal cord. Bacterial meningitis is spread through close physical contact and can become life-threatening within hours.
According to the BBC, the party in question was the CarneBall Bizarre party. The evening has a dress code of fetish, patent and leather, uniforms, goth, costumes, evening wear, glitz and glamour, and extravagant clothes.
Authorities were recommending that anyone who had attended the party should seem immediate preventative treatment.
So far, about 100 people have received preventative treatment but no other guests have shown symptoms of bacterial meningitis.
