Dulwich students hospitalized

KOH KAEW: Two students from Dulwich International College ended up in Phya Thai Hospital this morning with serious diarrhea after attending a dinner party at the school last night. The dinner was part of the festivities surrounding the FOBISSEA sports tournament, which this year took place at Dulwich, and which involved students from all over Asia. Dr Jesada Chaikunrat, preventive medicine chief of the Phuket Provincial Health Office, said there were six cases of diarrhea, but four of them were mild, with the students being sent only to the school’s infirmary. The other two, however, were more serious, and were sent to Phya Thai Hospital. They have since been discharged and are back in the Dulwich infirmary. Phornphen Satchaphan, manager of Dulwich, told the Gazette it was difficult to know how the children had become infected. “For such an event, we have to order food from many different places. “But I can tell you that the kids are fine now,” she added.
