BBC news is reporting that a 32 year old woman who suffered an E. coli O157:H7 infection is "improving." Still, her current condition is testimony to the level of risk associated with the bacteria. The woman’s mother provided this update:
"They have lightened the sedation and are hoping to bring her off the ventilator. She’s now able to nod and shake her head but I don’t think she’s fully aware of what’s happened to her. She’s off the dialysis now but she may need further dialysis in future. The doctors say it’s two steps forward, one step backwards."
The 32 year-old woman has an 11 week old son, and is one of four people connected to the outbreak according to Wales health officials.
The investigation is focusing on a "chip shop," the Llay Fish Bar in Wrexham, Wales.
