Health officials have been investigating the stomach bug-like illness
A mystery stomach bug-type illness that affected more than 30 visitors to a Walt Disney attraction is being investigated by health experts.
No one has been admitted to hospital as a result of the illness, with sufferers experiencing symptoms of diarrhoea, nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain, Medical Daily reported.
Those affected by the symptoms had visited Walt Disney World's Wild Africa Trek in Buena Vista, the news reports said, with Orange County Health Department spokesperson Dain Weister telling NBC News that health officials are questioning hundreds of people as they strive to get to the root of the problem.
According to Bay News 9, inspectors have already assessed the food preparation area at the attraction but found no breaches and returned a "satisfactory" report.
"It appears to be some kind of stomach bug," Weister told the Orlando Sentinel.
"Most people we have interviewed did not even go to the doctor. They thought, in some of these interviews, that it was a simple stomach bug, and they got better within two to five days."
The story offers a timely reminder to Britons of the kind of unforeseen circumstances that can crop up during holidays. People are urged to take out
medical travel insurance to ensure they're covered in the event of ill health.
