NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde has confirmed that two more patients have contracted the Clostridium Difficile (C-Diff) bug at Gartnavel General Hospital in Glasgow.
The latest cases bring to seven the number of patients infected in the outbreak.
The hospital has already closed a ward after two people with C-Diff died. One of the deaths was not related to the bug and tests are being carried out in the second case.
The ward remains closed and infection control measures are in place.
The Health Board said that two of the seven patients were now no longer showing symptoms of C-Diff and have been discharged.
Three patients who remain on the ward, are being nursed in isolation and are not giving cause for concern.
Thompsons Solicitors is representing the families of the victims at the public inquiry into the deaths of 18 people in a C-Diff outbreak at Vale of Leven Hospital.
