From Wikipedia:

Cause

The most common primary sources of infection resulting in sepsis are the lungs, the abdomen and the urinary tract.[8] In a third of cases no source is found.[8] The infectious agents are usually bacteria but can also be fungi and viruses.[8]

*********************************

I wonder if the reason for the infection wasn't given because they couldn't identify what it was?

When I searched for more info about Savita, I found a Wikipedia article on this case. It mentions the concerns of at least one microbiologist regarding antibiotic resistant bacteria. Someone just posted an article on superbugs originating in India and Pakistan. Savita was from India, and she was a dentist.
