According to Global News, six children with hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS) remain in hospital on Thursday as a result of the Calgary Fueling Brains daycare E. coli Outbreak – two of which remain on dialysis. In the past day, two children were discharged from hospital.
On Thursday, AHS said there were a total of 349 lab-confirmed cases linked to the outbreak. That’s one fewer than on Wednesday, which AHS said was confirmed as not part of the original outbreak.
Two more cases of secondary transmission were confirmed, both within an already-impacted household for a total of 29 secondary cases. AHS said some secondary cases are expected in “significant outbreaks” like the one declared on Sept. 4.
