E. coli strikes Ross resident

The Gazette reports that a female Ross County resident has contracted E. coli, and local health officials are warning about the bacteria’s dangers. Her information has yet to be released.
She apparently picked up the bacteria while visiting the Fayette County Fair.
Although she has been treated and released, Dr. Timothy Angel, health commissioner, is working with the state health department to trace the exact source of the contamination.
Angel stressed local residents have no need to become alarmed, but said anyone suffering the symptoms of E. coli should seek treatment from a doctor.
The source of the bacteria has not been confirmed, but Angel says, “We have confirmed that of E. coli that matches the strain found at the fair. We are working with the Ohio Department of Health to trace the commonalties among the cases.”
