E.coli O157 & Haemolytic Uraemic Syndrome

Welsh Nursery Affected

16th May 2006

Testing of 43 nursery and reception pupils at St Illtyd's RC Primary School in Merthyr Tydfil has been going on since last week, when a baby was hospitalised with E.coli.  Pupils have been told to stay away until they have submitted two negative tests.

The total number of cases identified is presently four, but Dr Gwen Lowe from the National Public Health Service for Wales said that "half the test results are not yet ready and it remains possible that there will be more cases identified".  They are continuing to investigate the source of the outbreak with interviews and an epidemiological study.
