UK health officials today were cited as saying 14 people were believed to be
infected with E.coli O157 after confirming that no new cases had emerged
A spokesman for NHS Highland said there had been no change in the number
thought to be infected with the bacterium since two more probable cases were
announced yesterday.
Three cases -- all children -- have been confirmed so far, although health
officials fear the number could rise over the coming days.
Tests on Friday confirmed the presence of the bacterium in the water supply
to the Rothiemurchus Camp and Caravan Park at Coylumbridge, near Inverness.
A number of houses in the area also use the same private water supply.
