E. coli cases in Iowa and New York have surfaced. In Iowa, three children have tested positive for E. coli infection in the last few weeks. Two of the children attend the same daycare center, and an investigation into the cases is ongoing.
Polk County Health Department experts said they have connected at least two cases, but have not found the source.
In New York, one child from Niagara County was recently diagnosed with E. coli. The student in the Wilson Central School District is now back in school after recovering completely from the illness. The public health department is still investigating the source of the child’s illness.
