Facing the Red Sea and the picturesque Titan Island this would be an ideal location for holiday makers to enjoy a well earned break, however this is not always possible.

Symptoms including stomach cramps, diarrhoea and vomiting have been reported. Cases of Shigella have been confirmed, with illness severe enough to require visitors to seek medical attention. These illnesses are forms of food poisoning and are caused by coming into contact with food that has been handled unhygienically, leading to many all-inclusive holidays being ruined and many holidaymakers left out of pocket.

- Avoid foods not cooked thoroughly and/or re-heated incorrectly.
- Avoid foods not prepared hygienically.
- Avoid food not stored at the correct temperature.
- Frequently use an alcohol-based hand gel.
- Avoid salads and any uncooked fruits and vegetables (these may have been handled unhygienically)
- Avoid swimming in water or pools that appear dirty and untreated.

10 DAYS OF SEVERE ILLNESS
AFTER STAYING IN THE
AURORA ORIENTAL RESORT
“She had to take unpaid time off work…”
Miss M travelled to the Oriental Resort for their Christmas and New Year celebration 2013. After eating different meats in the buffet area she started experiencing severe sickness and diarrhoea, only 4 days into her holiday. She was unable to attend the excursions she booked, with no refund.
Miss M went to a pharmacy and bought re-hydration sachets which helped keep her hydrated, although it didn’t help the symptoms. Her symptoms lasted for 10 days so when she returned home she had to take 2 unpaid days off work.
TESTED POSITIVE FOR SHIGELLA
AFTER HOLIDAY AT THE
AURORA ORIENTAL RESORT
“She suffered sickness and diarrhoea, along with blurred vision and stomach cramps.”
Miss K stayed at the Oriental Resort Sharm in September 2013. Miss M experienced an unsettled stomach only 2 days into the holiday. This was then followed by extreme gastric symptoms. She suffered sickness and diarrhoea with blood, along with blurred vision and stomach cramps. When Miss K returned home she visited her General Practice straight away.
The doctor took various samples for testing. The results came back positive for Shigella (a form of salmonella). Due to the illness Miss K had a colonoscopy which showed her bowel damaged. This has made her lactose intolerant and sensitive to certain foods. She has now been diagnosed with irritable bowel syndrome 1 year after her visit to Oriental Resort Sharm.
