“Mother and daughter both fell ill.”

[ezcol_1third]AFRICAEGYPTEGYPT-REDSEASHARMELSHEIKHRES_001544CORALSEAOASIS[/ezcol_1third] [ezcol_1third]Mrs A went on a 2 week family holiday to the Coral Sea Aqua club. Mrs A fell ill into the second week of her holiday, with stomach cramps and diarrhoea. This lasted a week and a half into her return to the UK. Mrs A also had to look after her young daughter, taking her to and from hospital as she had the same illness.  [/ezcol_1third] [ezcol_1third_end]When describing the food and drink Mrs A said the meat for the barbeque was left out in the baking sun, cakes were left out in the open and the fruit juices tasted watered down. Mrs A had some examinations by her GP when she returned home who told her she had an inflammation of the gut caused by an infection picked up in Egypt.

“A month after her return and she was still suffering!”

[ezcol_1third]11826279[/ezcol_1third] [ezcol_1third]Mrs H only spent 7 days in this resort but the effects of her stay were dismal. After 5 days in resort Mrs H developed flu-like symptoms and began feeling nauseous. By the end of her holiday Mrs H was confined to her room with diarrhoea and vomiting, she also felt very fatigued and had a temperature. As she was at her peak of illness at the very end of the holiday it made the long flight home extremely difficult. On her arrival back in the UK Mrs P consulted her doctor who reportedly diagnosed her with Gastroenteritis and shockingly Pneumonia.[/ezcol_1third] [ezcol_1third_end]

A report was taken from Mrs H a month after her return and she was still suffering with Pneumonia. The doctors told her it was caused by the air-conditioning systems in the hotel. She had numerous X-rays and needs to see a lung specialist. This illness has caused a lot of complications in her life. In the report taken Mrs H said she noticed the air-conditioning smelt like gas. The doctor in the hospital also told her the Gastroenteritis she suffered from was from undercooked food being washed in Egyptian tap water (e.g. Salad, and fruit). [/ezcol_1third_end]
