ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Two more cases of E-Coli have been confirmed in Moultrie, but health officials still don't have a common thread to connect what's making so many people sick.

Four patients have now tested positive for E-Coli. Health officials say those who tested negative are still part of their investigation because sometimes anti-biotics given to patients to treat symptoms can affect test results.

In the last ten days, more than a dozen people showed up at Colquitt Regional Medical Center with stomach cramps and bloody diarrhea. Public Health says the hospital continues to see patients with similar symptoms.
