Have you fallen victim to E.coli on holiday?

If you believe that you may have fallen victim to an E.coli infection whilst on holiday, there are certain factors that you need to look out for.

Firstly, the illness is contracted mainly by consuming food or drink which is contaminated with the bacteria, however the illness can also be passed from person to person.

The symptoms of E.coli normally begin to appear around 3 days after being infected, and they include:

  • Diarrhoea
  • Blood in faeces
  • Vomiting
  • Stomach cramps
  • Fever

In some cases, these symptoms can be quite severe and can last for up to 14 days.

How to act if contract E.coli on your holiday

If you are ever on holiday and are convinced that you have contracted E coli, firstly it is crucial that you report your condition to your tour operator and hotel management.

This is because E coli is contagious, the hotel management and tour operator can work together to decrease the rate of the illness spreading between guests.

We also advise that you ask if there have been any other recently reported cases of E coli at the hotel.

Furthermore, although there is no particular treatment to cure E coli, most people infected with the illness will begin to feel better without receiving any medical treatment.

To combat the illness, it is vital that you drink plenty of fluids to prevent dehydration. However, if you start to suffer from dehydration then you must seek medical attention immediately.

In addition to this, we also recommend that you converse with other guests in your resort to find out whether the E coli outbreak is more widespread than you may have initially thought.

If you to decide to make a claim for holiday illness compensation, by claiming with other holidaymakers your chances of bringing a successful claim will be significantly enhanced.
