Weekend Health File

Health officials have managed to contain C. difficile in two of the 10 Ontario hospitals dealing with outbreaks of the infection.

A spokeswoman for the minister of health said the outbreaks have ended at Toronto East General Hospital and Hamilton Health Sciences.

Neala Barton said it isn’t rare for the number of outbreaks in the province to fluctuate day to day, or week to week.

But she said news the outbreak has been contained at two hospitals is “a positive sign.”

Outbreaks of the dangerous bug — which causes severe diarrhea — have been linked to 17 deaths in Ontario since late May.

Hospitals in Guelph, St. Catharines, Niagara Falls, Napanee, Welland, Orangeville and Mississauga are still struggling to contain outbreaks of the infection.
