E. coli 0517:H7 case probably isolated

One confirmed and one suspected case of the strain E. coli with serious complications are not enough to say there’s an outbreak of the illness in Gothenburg, local physicians say.
Spokespersons at all three clinics–Gothenburg Family Practice, Costa Family Practice and Gothenburg Medical Arts–said there have been no confirmed cases of the illness.
The sole case was confirmed at Kearney’s Good Samaritan Hospital.
Aaron Salomon, a physician’s assistant at Gothenburg Medical Arts, said E. coli 0157:H7 causes serious problems in those infected.
It’s difficult to say how one local youngster became infected with the serious strain, Solomon said, but that pediatricians and infectious disease specialists share information to try and locate the origin.
