MOSCOW, November 12 (Itar-Tass) — A criminal case has been opened in Russia’s Far Eastern Khabarovsk Territory over a mass enteric infection among more than 50 children at a local boarding school, a spokesman for the Russian Investigations Committee told Itar-Tass on Monday.
A total of 51 children from the Bikinsky boarding school for mentally disabled children sought medical help over enteric infection in the period from November 1 to November 12. Quarantine was imposed in the boarding school. The criminal case was opened on charges of offering inferior-quality services, the spokesman said.
According to local authorities, three members of the boarding school’s personnel were also hospitalized.
Specialists from the local consumer rights protection authority exposed gross violations of food storage sanitary rules and cooking technologies. They also found that the sick children were hospitalized with delays.
An investigation is underway.
