Jeff Beck death — Rod Stewart and Mick Jagger lead tributes as ‘one of the greatest’ British guitarist dies aged 78

Meningitis explained

Jeff Beck’s management reported that he passed away following a battle with meningitis.

Meningitis is usually caused by bacteria, viruses or fungi that invade the body and cause the protective lining around the brain and spinal cord to swell up.

It is usually caught from people who carry these viruses or bacteria in their nose or throat but are not ill themselves.

It can be spread through sneezing, coughing, kissing and sharing utensils, cutlery and toothbrushes.

Anyone can get meningitis but it’s more common in babies and young children, teenagers and young adults, elderly people and those with a weak immune system, such as those having chemotherapy.
