Hi, welcome to the ehealth forum and I am glad to help you.
You seem to be concerned by the persistant vomitings and blood in the stools after the intake of some bad food.
Your present history and symptoms point towards the possibility of food poisoning.
Typical symptoms include nausea, vomiting, abdominal cramping, and diarrhea that occur suddenly (within 48 hours) after consuming a contaminated food or drink. Depending on the contaminant, fever and chills, bloody stools, dehydration, and nervous system damage may follow.
Among good number of causes shiegella and E.coli are notorious for causing bloody diarrhoea nin addition to other symptoms.
You must consult your doctor for the relevant investigations and definitive management as the same is not possible online.
Hope this helps. Take care.
