The number of people sickened by surrogate alcohol in Russia's Volgograd region has increased to 88, as 16 more people were hospitalized with the diagnosis "toxic hepatitis" since Thursday, a duty officer of the regional department of the Emergency Situations Ministry told Itar-Tass on Friday. According to the regional health care committee, cases of poisoning with inferior quality alcohol were registered in the Mikhailovsky, Novoanninsky, Uryupinsky, Danilovsky, Ilovlinsky and Frolovsky districts. The regional disaster medicine center told Tass that a majority of the patients are homeless persons. Police, together with personnel of the Rospotrebnadzor consumer health watchdog, have been checking retail outlets in the region. The patients in serious condition, who numbered 24 as of Thursday, are undergoing treatment in the toxicological center in Volgograd. Criminal cases have been opened over the facts of mass poisoning. The first case of poisoning was reported a week ago, when a 32-year-old man died, apparently from inferior quality vodka. An autopsy showed that the death had been caused by liver necrosis.
