  1. Transmission of Escherichia coli 0157:H7 infection in Minnesota child day-care facilities.

    Article - En anglais

    Objective.-Escherichia coli 0157:H7 infection can cause hemorrhagic colitis and hemolytic uremic syndrome.

    Since 1988 the Minnesota Department of Health has carried out surveillance for this infection.

    To assess the occurrence of person-to-person transmission within day-care facilities, we investigated facilities where an infected child attended after onset of symptoms.

    Design.-Parents of children less than 5 years old with E coli 0157:H7 infection were interviewed from July 1988 through December 1989.

    If the child attended day care after onset, stool cultures were obtained from other children in attendance and their parents were interviewed.
