PERM, June 3 (Itar-Tass) - Eight labor migrants have been hospitalized with enteric fever symptoms in Perm, a spokesman for the Civil Defence state enterprise told Itar-Tass on Monday.
“In the period from May 18 to May 31, seven persons were hospitalized with enteric fever symptoms to local infectious diseases clinics. One more pregnant woman with the same symptoms was taken to hospital number 1 in Perm. As of today, the enteric fever diagnosis has been confirmed in two persons,” the spokesman said.
All these people are labor migrants from Tajikistan and Uzbekistan. They worked at the Zaostrovka food market and lived in a private hotel.
Earlier, Russia’s chief sanitary doctor and head of the consumer rights protection authority Gennady Onishchenko said the enteric fever outbreak was caused by anti-sanitary conditions at their living place, which was overcrowded: as many as 101 people lived in the private house.
