USA – 130 Las Vegas Elementary School Students ‘Projectile Vomiting’ After Mysterious Illness Outbreak


A gastrointestinal illness outbreak at a Las Vegas elementary school left at least 130 students “projectile vomiting”, according to local reports.

Teachers at the Wayne N. Tanaka Elementary School in Nevada asked the ill students to line up outside the school as they repeatedly “projectile vomited” during the incident on Jan. 27, according to 8 News Now.

Officials with the Clark County School District (CCSD) and Southern Nevada Health District (SNHD) have not said what caused the illness but confirmed they are investigating the incident.

A spokesperson for the Southern Nevada Health District (SNHD) told 8 News Now, “During a foodborne illness outbreak, people are interviewed about what they ate before they got sick when possible food contamination is confirmed using epidemiological and laboratory information.

“Gastrointestinal illnesses can have many causes,” the spokesperson added.
