S.C. daycare contaminated with E. coli linked to toddler’s death

The recent death of a 2-year-old boy and the sickness of eight others has been linked to a South Carolina daycare facility suspected of E. coli contamination, NY Daily News reported on June 10.

“Learning Vine” daycare center in Greenwood is being probed by the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control after Myles Mayfield died on May 31. County officials later revealed that Mayfield died from a serious infection related to E. coli bacteria. Laboratory tests showed that the eight sickened individuals were all found positive for E. coli infection. Children are at high risk of serious illnesses after being exposed to E. coli bacteria. The daycare was temporarily shut down due to an ongoing investigation as well as professional cleaning.
