Most people that visit Tunisia go for the beautiful beaches and the endless amounts of sunshine, but there’s much more to Tunisia if you want to look for it. The North African country has examples everywhere of its colonial history and the Saharan desert in the South is a far cry away from the Mediterranean coastline full of delicious fish dishes and all-inclusive resorts that make Tunisia a tourism hotspot.

All-inclusive resorts and hotel environments are commonly subject to outbreaks of shigella based illness. Shigella bacteria causes gastroenteritis and the symptoms of this can be particularly nasty, with diarrhoea and fever ruining holidays in an instant. Shigella bacteria is caused by faecal matter and can spread rapidly from person to person, especially somewhere that accommodates hundreds of people. If hygiene standards are not adequate and hand washing measures are ignored then handles in toilets, door knobs and consequently food and other surfaces will become infected by shigella.
