An outbreak of Shiga toxin-producing E coli in the UK saw 211 cases identified by the UK Health Security Agency up to 11 June.

Some 42% of the cases were admitted to hospital up to the same date.

Of these cases, 147 occurred in England, 27 in Wales, 35 in Scotland and two in Northern Ireland.

The agency stated that the evidence in Northern Ireland’s two cases suggests that these infections were acquired on a visit to England.
