Marta Matyushko, head of the health department of the Lviv City Council, reported 37 patients among internally displaced persons, most of them children.
In a Lviv modular town for internally displaced people, people suffer from an intestinal infection. It is known that 37 people fell ill, most of whom are children. This was reported by journalists of Radio Liberty with reference to a briefing by the head of the health department of the Lviv City Council Marta Matyushko.
Journalists report that 13 patients remain under the supervision of doctors, two of whom did not live in the town. Most of all patients are among minors – 21 children. Non-hospitalized patients are isolated from others in their rooms, they are cared for by doctors.
According to Vladimir Golovaty, director of the Center for Social Support, the administration checked the products in the establishment for suitability. The man assured the media workers that the dishes on the eve of the outbreak were prepared from fresh products.
“I am aware of the case of a resident who was at work on Friday, only returned on Saturday afternoon. But last night he also had certain symptoms of poisoning, although he did not eat at all in the town. His family ate, but he did not, “- shared Golovaty.
The media workers did not manage to communicate with the migrants now living in the modular city, because the presence of outsiders is prohibited there. However, Andrei Orfin, deputy director of the Lviv Regional Infectious Diseases Hospital, told reporters that the cause of the outbreak is unknown. Medics are examining food samples from the center and will not receive the results until Friday, March 10.
“There may be a food poisoning and an acute intestinal infection. When they talk about poisoning, they combine these two concepts. In terms of symptoms, these are two conditions that are very similar to each other. What the final diagnosis will be depends on the results of the study,” the doctor explained.
Patients are improving, Orfin said, although a few children still “remain on fire.”
The day before, the director of the Lviv Regional Center for Disease Control and Prevention of the Ministry of Health of Ukraine, Natalia Ivanchenko-Timko, announced the hospitalization of 11 people with a primary diagnosis of acute intestinal infection. According to her, the premises were disinfected in the town.
“We were admitted with complaints of nausea, vomiting, fever, frequent liquid stools in a state of moderate severity,” Ivanchenko-Timko said about the patients.
Also today, March 6, the media reported the death of an American as a result of infection with a rare amoeba. Doctors suggest that the man could become infected when washing his nose with tap water. For the last 9 years, there have been 0-5 such cases per year.
