Holiday Village Red Sea Illness Bugs
Have you returned from the Holiday Village Red Sea resort in Egypt with an illness bug?
Illness Bug Outreak at Red Sea Resort
Simpson Millar Solicitors are representing more than 200 holidaymakers whose holidays were ravaged by an illness bug at the Holiday Village Red Sea featured by the UK tour operator First Choice Holidays.
This latest group compensation claim comes after Simpson Millar successfully represented more than 120 holidaymakers who fell victims to an illness bug outbreak at the hotel the previous year.
The illness bugs being reported by sick holidaymakers who have contacted their GP’s following holidays at the Holiday Village Red Sea include a high number of cases of Cryptosporidium and Salmonella.
Both of these infections are caused by bugs that indicate poor hygiene standards.
The symptoms of both Salmonella and Cryptosporidium are similar with typical symptoms of diarrhoea, stomach cramps and sickness.
Salmonella is usually associated with food poisoning whilst Cryptosporidium is generally associated with contaminated water.
After featuring in the programme BBC Watchdog, Nick Harris, Head of Simpson Millar’s Holiday Claims Department said;
“The high number of people who have contacted me distraught and angry following holidays at the Red Sea Holiday Village is staggering.
What is worrying are the number of complaints I have listened to about the medical treatment being administered. It seems anyone complaining of a stomach bug is fed a concoction of drugs without proper checks being carried out to make sure that the treatment is safe.
In the majority of cases medicinal drugs were being handed out.”.
Typical complaints holidaymakers are alleging after staying at the formerly named Holiday Village Coral Sea resort include;
- Food such as chicken being undercooked;
- Smells of raw sewage around the garden areas;
- Dirty swimming pool water;
- Chemicals being thrown randomly into the pools;
- Human faeces contaminating the swimming pools;
