Members will wish to note the current situation with regard to the cases compatible with E.coli0157 in the Brecon area on which I made a Written Statement last week.  The cases were all linked to the Puffins pre-school nursery and Llanfaes CP School.  There were no linked cases at other schools.  The total number of cases remains at 12, although as this outbreak is still active, the number may fluctuate.  The nursery and the school have re-opened and children are returning to them both as they are declared negative.

There have been no new cases in South Wales, where the total number of cases to date is 172, of which 131 have been confirmed positive on micro-biological testing.  There are no cases remaining in hospital. The Outbreak Control Team continues to manage the situation carefully.
