E.coli O157 & Haemolytic Uraemic Syndrome

Cases of E.coli confirmed in Co. Donegal

19th December 2011

Health officials in the Republic of Ireland are investigating an outbreak E.coli O157, where a child is understood to be among a number of people who have suffered from severe vomiting and diarrhoea. However, the Health and Safety Executive won't say how many people are affected because of patient confidentiality. It's believed most of the cases are centred around Inch Island in Co Donegal.

All tests so far have ruled out the public water supply but the source of the illness has not been traced.
