Man dies from bacterial infection after eating bad oyster in Sarasota County

Мужчина умер от плотоядной бактерии поев устриц

The man died on July 10 after eating at an unidentified restaurant in Sarasota County, according to the Florida Department of Health.

Health officials say the customer was exposed to a bacterial infection known as Vibrio vulnificus and died just two days after visiting the Sarasota eatery.

Authorities have so far refused to reveal the man's identity and the name of the restaurant.

MLB All-Star Game: American League Wins 8
With the 8-6 triumph, the American League defeated the National League for the sixth consecutive year at the Midsummer Classic. From there, the contest became video game-like, with the two teams combining for six home runs in the final three innings.

Raw oysters can carry Vibrio vulnificus, a bacteria that can cause flesh-eating disease.

Health officials say you should not go into the water if you have fresh cuts or scrapes.

Symptoms can include diarrhea, nausea, vomiting, fever and chills, rapid pulse, rapid breathing, wound infections and intestinal infections. About 80% of those infections occur between May and October, when water is particularly warm - ideal for colonies of bacteria to grow and thrive. But an infection can become more serious, leading to lethal in those with a compromised immune system, especially folks suffering from chronic liver disease. "That can progress to a severe illness where you get the bacteria into your blood causing you to be more sick", Said Drennon. Infections are rare but they can be contracted by eating tainted raw shellfish - such as oysters - or by exposing open wounds to salt water. Sarasota had no cases in 2017, and had three confirmed cases of the bacteria and a single death from infection in 2016. "That's usually not the case when someone consumes the bacteria", Drennon said. People can also contract the bacteria if they wade in water and have any open wounds. One study conducted by the Florida state health office found the infection was the leading cause of death from foodborne illness between 1981 and 1992.
