E. coli Outbreak Waning

No new cases of E. coli have been reported to state health officials since Friday, so a command center set up to coordinate the response to the disease outbreak is closing, officials said Monday.
State health officials are investigating 106 suspected cases of E. coli, 41 of which have been confirmed. Nineteen of the confirmed cases are in Wake County.
The North Carolina State Fair has been identified as the source of the outbreak, with almost all of the confirmed cases in people who attended the fair last month in Raleigh.
Although officials continue to investigate where at the State Fair the outbreak may have originated, they said active surveillance for suspected cases of illness related to the outbreak has been discontinued.
