Sir: Having read your article about meningitis ("There's a killer on the run", 15 September) I am sure I am not alone in worrying about the prospect of parents of a seriously ill child searching their kitchen cupboards for a glass tumbler. Urgent medical attention should be sought for any child who is "floppy, unresponsive and unwell" regardless of whether they have a rash or not, let alone whether it disappears under a glass tumbler.
