Update on Ecoli O157 Outbreak

August 16, 2007 4:02 PM

There continues to be no new confirmed cases of E coli O157 related to the Paisley outbreak.
A 72 year-old man remains critical at the Victoria Infirmary and a 70 year-old Paisley woman remains stable in hospital in the Republic of Ireland.
A 71 year-old woman being treated at the RAH in Paisley has improved significantly and the expectation is that she will be discharged later today.
The other four individuals affected continue to recover well at home.
The OCT are continuing their detailed investigations into the source of the outbreak. This includes looking into other confirmed E coli O157 cases in Scotland and England to establish if there could be a link to this outbreak. So far none of these cases have been linked to the Paisley outbreak.
The OCT will meet again tomorrow afternoon (Friday 17th August), following which a further update will be issued.
