We reported on the death E coli victim in Franklin County, Ohio earlier this month. Since that report, health officials in Central Ohio have come up with 7 additional cases.
A 55-year-old Delaware County woman who was hospitalized for three days with an E. coli infection. She is now at home and being interviewed about where and what she ate before coming down with E. coli.
Three cases in Fairfield County and three Franklin County cases, including two in the City of Columbus, are also being investigated.
Ohio health officials are looking for links that could point to a common source for the E. coli infections that appear to be occurring within about a week of one another in neighboring counties.
A Gahanna, Ohio woman died in a local hospital May 27 from E. coli. A TV10 news story on the E. coli cluster can be found here.
