The mother of a five-year-old boy killed in the south Wales E.coli
outbreak hopes that her son’s death teaches others a lesson.
The BBC reports that five-year-old Mason Jones was the only casualty from the E. coli outbreak, which spread amongst schools and affected 161 people. Approximately 50 additional people are suspected to have been infected.
His mother believes that her son’s death could have been avoided and hopes that others learn to treat E. coli as the deadly disease that it could be.
