E.coli O157 & Haemolytic Uraemic Syndrome

E.coli O157 closes Bristol school

27th May 2011

Redfield Edge Primary School in Oldland Common, Bristol, has been closed until Tuesday 7th June after several children from the reception and year 1 classes became ill due to E.coli O157.

Two four-year-olds and one five-year-old have so far been taken to hospital but were said to be recovering yesterday(26.5.11). One was treated and discharged, with the other two still in hospital.

In the past week, parents of 28 other children reported they had mostly milder symptoms, typically stomach ache and diarrhoea, with some children experiencing more severe symptoms such as bloody diarrhoea. All affected children were being tested for E. coli O157 and initial test results indicated there were probably three with the infection.

An incident team, including communicable disease experts from the HPA, NHS public health staff and environmental health officers, were investigating any common links between the children affected yesterday to try to establish a source for the illness.
