Dr Jane Cooper, a consultant in public health medicine has said that a case of E.coli that has killed an eight-year-old girl was unlikely to be part of an outbreak. Dr Cooper said:
Our thoughts are with the family during this very difficult time. Sometimes it is possible to identify a particular source of E.coli O157 infection. An outbreak may occur if a number of people are exposed to the same source.
NHS Ayrshire & Arran is satisfied that this case is not part of an outbreak, and has not identified a particular source which might represent a risk to others.
