Number of patients in the town of Kassimov in Ryazan region, who have been diagnosed with dysentery has risen to 140
Number of patients in the town of Kassimov in Ryazan region, some 400 kilometers to the east of Moscow, who have been diagnosed with dysentery has risen to 140, spokespeople for the local department for emergency situations said. Of that number, 102 patients are children. Five of the grownups whose diagnoses have been confirmed are workers of the Kassimov affiliation of a major regional dairy producer. Officials at the prosecutor’s office said, however, there were no severe cases among the sick workers. The outbreak of dysentery was registered in early December, and the district prosecutor’s office instituted a criminal case over it citing Article 236 of the Russian Criminal Code that stipulates punishment for encroachment on sanitary and epidemiological rules. Officials are uncertain yet as regards the causes of this outbreak of dysentery. “Investigators are looking into two possible versions of the incident,” an official said. “One version blames dairy products for the spread of the disease and the other blames potable water.” Prosecutors are considering a sanitary and epidemiological study that may establish the source of infection. The total number of people taken to hospitals on suspicion of having dysentery stands at about 300. Kassimov has a population of around 35,000 people.
