A viral hepatitis A outbreak in the Russian city of Nizhny Novgorod is continuing
About 2,700 people have been affected with the liver disease over the past three months, a spokesperson at the regional monitoring centre told Itar-Tass on Monday. Forty-one people have been admitted to hospitals with the diagnosis of hepatitis A over the weekend. A spokesperson at the regional branch of the Agency of Consumer Rights and Human Well-Being told Itar-Tass that the hepatitis rate somewhat decreased last week, but it was too early to speak of improvement of the situations, “Hepatitis A is an unpredictable disease, and for this reason one should be cautious in prognoses,” he said. A rigid sanitary regime is maintained in the city. Water hyperchlorination has been decreased from five milligrams to three milligrams per litre of the water, but it is continued regularly. Selling pies at markets is allowed only in indoor conditions. Cooking salads and giving juices from large packages is permitted in kindergartens. Medics do not rule out that the hepatitis epidemic will continue until the beginning of the new year and constantly remind citizens about preventive measures and personal hygiene. More than 74,800 people have been vaccinated against viral hepatitis in Nizhny Novgorod.
