Egypt Holiday Illness Hotel Outbreak - We are instructed by 20
holiday makers who suffered illness on holiday at a large all-inclusive hotel in
the Egyptian Red Sea resort. The holiday makers tested positive for a range of bacterial
pathogens including Salmonella food poisoning. Others tested positive for Cryptosporidium
– a bacterial infection often caused by swimming pool water contaminated by human
faeces. Others in the group contracted E-Coli – suggesting that the hotel was far
from hygienic. The holiday makers are now pursuing substantial compensation claims
for their ruined holidays and personal injuries.
Egypt Sickness Outbreak at Hotel – We are pursuing compensation
claims for 24 holiday makers who became ill at an Hotel in Sharm El Sheikh during
May and June 2010. Some of the holiday makers contracted salmonella food poisoning
at the hotel and others Shigella – a nasty bacterial infection which causes projectile
vomiting and profuse diarrhoea. The holiday makers complain that standards of hygiene
at the hotel were poor with the food left exposed to insects and served lukewarm
and in some cases under cooked – common causes of food poisoning. The tour operator
has made compensation offers.
Salmonella at Hotel in Egypt – Our client received £4,500 after
contracting Salmonella food poisoning during an all-inclusive holiday in Egypt.
The tour operator admitted liability as Salmonella can be avoided if food is cooked

spilt. The cleaning regime at the hotel was inadequate consequently leading to our
