Another illness hotspot in the summer of 2014 was Skanes Family Resort in Skanes, Tunisia. received over 40 enquiries from guests staying at the hotel.

One of the unlucky few was Mr H who travelled to the hotel in August 2014 on a family holiday. In the last week of the holiday Mr H started suffering with severe stomach cramps, diarrhoea & vomiting. As he was reaching the end of the holiday Mr H self-medicated taking tablets that were brought from home. [/ezcol_1third] [ezcol_1third_end]However this had no affect what so ever and Mr H visited his GP soon after returning. A stool sample was taken and he was later diagnosed with cryptosporidium which if left untreated can cause a huge health risk. Mr H recalls that the food seemed to be left out for a long period of time and could well have been reheated. Mr H lost around 2 stone in weight due to the illness and was left suffering for over 30 days, resulting in time off work and loss off earnings.[/ezcol_1third_end]
