CDC Investigates Multistate E coli O103 Outbreak

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and several other USA agencies are investigating an E.coli outbreak in five states, the CDC said here on Friday.

Analysis of the E. coli strain indicates that the ill people appear to share a common source of infection. The CDC has a collection of these fingerprints in a database that aides in identifying potential outbreaks.

They say 72 people of all ages have been infected - with eight of those infected winding up in hospitals.

The cases have been recorded in five states - Georgia (8), Kentucky (36), OH (5), Tennessee (21), and Virginia (2). Illnesses began on Mar 2, with Mar 29 as the latest illness onset. They range in age from 1 to 74 years, with a median of 17 years, and 55% are female.
