        Bloemhof death toll rises - two more babies die from diarrhoea
        Sapa | 02 June, 2014 08:36

        Two more babies have died from diarrhoea in Bloemhof where the water has been contaminated, the North West health department said on Monday.

        "One baby was seven-months-old and the other was 13-months-old," said spokesman Tebogo Lekgethwane.

        The circumstances surrounding their deaths were similar to the first baby that died last Wednesday, he said.

        Dozens of residents went to local clinics to be checked out last week following the contamination. Five babies were admitted to hospital for observation.

            WATER contaminated with the ecoli bacteria is suspected to have caused the death of a child and the illness of residents in Bloemhof, North West.

            Last week, nine-month-old Letlhogonolo Sehau died and 300 cases of diarrhoea were reported in the town.

            Ecoli is a type of bacteria that normally lives in human and animal intestines.

            Provincial health department spokesman Tebogo Lekgethwane said at the weekend they expected the test results to be released today.
