Newport Centre pool sickness outbreak spreads (From South Wales Argus)
The pool was closed last Thursday, after seven out of 14 people in Gwent who contracted cryptosporidiosis – which can cause watery diarrhoea, stomach pain, nausea or vomiting, and fever – since mid-August, were found to have used the pool.
The results of water samples confirmed the presence of the bug cryptosporidium at the pool and the outbreak was made public on Tuesday.
