Forty-six children were hospitalized with symptoms of a relatively rare infection
Forty-six children were hospitalized with symptoms of a relatively rare infection in the east Siberian city of Krasnoyarsk in the past two days, a health official said on Saturday.

The condition of two children brought from a summer kindergarten camp, who were initially placed in intensive care with symptoms of yersiniosis, has improved, said Yulia Kryukova, spokesperson for the city's health department.

Kryukova said police were inquiring into possible violations of sanitary rules at the summer camp.

Yersiniosis is an infection contracted through the consumption of undercooked meat, milk, water or vegetables contaminated by the bacteria.

Kryukova said more cases could be expected until June 26, as the incubation period for the disease is seven days.
