E.coli O157 & Haemolytic Uraemic Syndrome

Update on Sutton Park Outbreak

21st September 2012

The number of positive cases has now risen to 8 although all 6 children and 2 adults are thought to have made a full recovery.

The Health Protection Agency (HPA) is now advising parents to keep children under the age of 10 away from the park, as they are among the most vulnerable.

In addition to the posters issued by Birmingham City Council in Sutton Park advising of the steps necessary to reduce the risk of infection, extra hand-washing facilities have also been set up in the park.

A series of races due to be staged through the park this weekend by the the Midland Counties Athletic Association have been called off on the advice of the council.
