VOLOGDA, July 22 (Itar-Tass) - Serous meningitis has been diagnosed in 14 people in Russia’s northwestern city of Veliky Ustyug, the press service of the regional government said on Monday, referring to the local division of the Federal service on customers' rights protection and human well-being surveillance (Rospotrebnadzor).
“Last week the number of patients with serous meningitis was 11. Currently, as many as 20 people are in hospital with suspected enteric virus. Fourteen have been diagnosed as having serous meningitis. Six other patients are suffering from minor symptoms, such as pharyngitis or symptoms typical of common cold,” the press service said.
According to Rospoterbnadzor, all the patients with symptoms of enteric virus are in satisfactory condition.
The local administration has taken measures prevent the spread of the disease. In some cases, medics recommend to take immunomodulatory drugs.
Local epidemiologists say the infection has been brought to the city from outside. It might have been caused by unwashed fruits, since water samples taken here have exposed no enteric viruses.
