MOSCOW, March 21 (Itar-Tass) — The tuberculosis incidence rate among foreigners, which arrived in Russia for earnings, is four times higher than average Russian indicators, head of the Russian consumer rights watchdog (Rospotrebnadzor) Gennady Onishchenko told a press conference here on Wednesday.
He explained that the tuberculosis incidence rate among labour migrants makes 247 cases for each 100,000 people, whereas it is 66 cases for each 100,000 Russians.
In the previous year 2,600 imported tuberculosis cases were reported in Russia. Onishchenko recalled that a foreigner should be deported according to the Russian legislation, if such infection is detected.
“The labour migration should be put in order,” Onishchenko noted. “We welcome people, who arrived to work and earn money, but demand so that all of them will be examined for tuberculosis,” he underlined.
