US : Another E. coli case linked to central Pa. lake

Via Chron, excerpt :

" Another case of E. coli infection has been linked to a lake at a central Pennsylvania park, bringing the total number of confirmed cases to 14.

State health officials said Thursday the latest case linked to the lake at Cowans Gap State Park involves a child from Maryland.

The lake was closed to recreational use last week after a series of E. coli infections were reported by people who had gone swimming or done other activities there.

All but one of the cases involve children. The latest child affected is the third Maryland resident to become ill."
