E. coli outbreak in day care

There has been an E. coli bacteria outbreak at a day care center in Macon County, where two toddlers have been admitted to an area hospital as a result. Eight other children are recovering.

The Health Department has begun investigating the outbreak, according to Nashville’s News Channel 5.

Investigators have said that they believe one child somehow contracted E. coli, then went to the day care center in Lafayette. Nine other kids got sick days later from secondary infections from the one sick child.

Two of those kids are in the hospital after their kidneys shut down, as a result of hemolytic uremic syndrome.
