Two kids die at ‘devastated’ major faculty confronted with abdomen bug outbreak

A pair of children have died at a school currently fighting against a nasty stomach bug outbreak.

Their deaths have left Millstead Primary School in Everton, Liverpool “devastated”, says the headteacher who added the kids were just five and six years old and “filled their classes with joy”.

An infection called giardiasis has spread at the school and is being managed by the UK Health Security Agency (UKHSA) which has not confirmed the children’s causes of death. UKHSA even stressed it is “unlikely to be due to Giardia”.
