MOSCOW, August 8 (Itar-Tass) - A Russian tourist, who has been hospitalized with intoxication symptoms in Turkey, has been released from hospital and continues his vacation at the resort, spokesperson of the Federal Tourism Agency (Rostourism) Irina Shchegolkova told Itar-Tass.
“A child, who has arrived in Turkey for vacation and has been poisoned, has been discharged from hospital. Thus, all Russian tourists left local hospitals and continue their vacations at the resort,” Shchegolkova said.
She stressed, “Rostourism has not received calls from Russian tourists about their health condition.”
Earlier, Shchegolkova said “Grand Ring in Turkey’s Beldibi is accommodating around 1,500 foreign tourists and only Russians complained of feeling sick.” “Of course, in this case it is necessary to say that our holidaymakers should be more moderate and make their own diet in a right way,” she said.
All hotels where cases of stomach flu have been reported are being sanitized. “All tourists are offered accommodations in other hotels,” she said.
Earlier, Rostourism reported a new outbreak of stomach flu among Russian tourists holidaying in Antalya’s Orient Palace (23 cases) and in Belek’s Jacaranda (24 cases).
Rostourism keeps a close watch on how the investigation proceeds and maintains contacts with the Consulate-General in Antalya, Turkey’s Ministry of Culture and Tourism and tour operators.
