Abstract

From Sept. 2 to 13, 1973, acute gastroenteritis with acute diarrhea being its main symptom prevailedamong persons who were revealed to have used a restaurant in Nagoya airport. The number of the patients notified reached 956 in all.
Through epidemiological investigations, that outbreak was strongly suggested to be caused by the drinking water from one of two wells used at that restaurant.
Bacteriological investigations detected pathogenic E. coli in the feces of 18 patients and the well water, all of which were identified as same serotype pathogenic E. coli (06: K: H16, 027: K: H7, 0148: K: 1128).
