US Health Officials investigate Cyclosporiasis outbreak in Travis County

Apparently, 82 cases of Cyclosporiasis have been reported in Travis County by Austin Public Health officials. The APH is investigating the outbreak. As of August 5, with the earliest symptom onset reported on June 1.

Cyclosporiasis is an intestinal illness caused by a microscopic parasite. It is spread by consuming food or water that has been contaminated with faeces. APH has not identified a single source for the latest outbreak, but previous outbreaks have been linked to a variety of fresh fruits or vegetables, including raspberries, cilantro, basil, and green onions.

It usually takes a week for a person to develop symptoms once infected. The symptoms can include diarrhea, frequent bowel movements, loss of appetite, weight loss, stomach cramps, bloating, gas, nausea, and fatigue.
