Boone County Health Department warns against shigella outbreak

COLUMBIA — The Boone County Health Department has warned against an outbreak of shigella, a bacterial infection of the intestines, in Boone County.
Spokeswoman Andrea Waner said there have been 42 probable and confirmed casesof shigella in the past three weeks in Boone County. Over the past five years, Boone County has averaged six cases annually.
Shigella is transmitted through exposure to feces, particularly in food, water and on toys, Waner said. It is spread most when people do not properly wash their hands after using the bathroom.
Some of the symptoms of shigella include explosive diarrhea, stomach cramps, nausea, vomiting and fever, she said. The infection typically lasts from two days to one week. Waner said the biggest issue related to shigella is dehydration caused by diarrhea and vomiting.
Mild cases of shigella can be treated at home with rest and plenty of fluids, but Waner recommends that individuals contact their physicians if symptoms appear. Doctors usually prescribe antibiotics to clear up the infection, she said. READ MORE Use ionic silver to spray down toys and colloidal silver orally if affected. Beinki
