E. coli

By on March 16, 2016

Have you suffered from food poisoning or Holiday Sickness while on holiday?
Most strains of E. coli (Escherichia Coli) are completely harmless to the body.  However, there are strains that can be very dangerous, in particular E. coli 0157 which is a bacterium that in the last few years has been on the increase. This particular strain produces a toxin known as Shiga toxin, which along with other symptoms can eventually lead to death.

Cause of Illness:

E. coli can be found in water supplies that have not been properly treated or can come as a result of cross-contamination with cooked and uncooked meats.

Common Symptoms:

  • Nausea
  • Diarrhoea (often with blood)
  • Abdominal cramps
  • Vomiting
  • Dehydration

Less Common Symptoms:

  • Haemorrhagic diarrhoea (a severe loss of blood)
  • Haemolytic Uremic Syndrome (in which the red blood cells are destroyed, resulting in kidney failure).

Source: Undercooked ground beef, unpasteurised milk, raw fruits and vegetables.

Onset of illness: 1 – 10 days after contamination.

Duration of illness: Some E. coli bacteria are harmless, whereas others can result in long-term disabilities. In most cases however, E. coli symptoms last from 5 – 30 days.
It is your tour operators’ responsibility to make sure you are provided with a safe, clean and hygienic hotel. Holiday Sickness often affects various travellers at the same time, given that a large number of people eat from the same food source and same meal sittings.
