YEKATERINBURG, August 23. /TASS/. The most recent anthrax victim, a minor who is currently under medical supervision in a northern Siberian hospital, has gotten back on his feet, and will be discharged in the coming days, the Yamal-Nenets regional governor’s press office reported on Tuesday.
"At the moment there is one child in the district hospital. He is expected to be released and sent home in the coming days with a confirmed ‘healthy’ diagnosis," the press service stated.
A total of 95 people hospitalized from the anthrax hotbed have been discharged. "All of them have undergone medical exams and, if necessary, were given high-quality treatment. They are feeling well and have been furnished with new dwelling places in tundra areas free of the disease," the press service indicated.
Authorities imposed quarantine measures in the region on July 25 because the anthrax outbreak has so far killed more than 2,500 reindeer.
A total of 97 people, including 50 children, were taken to local hospitals from the anthrax focal point. To date, 24 anthrax cases have been confirmed in Yamal. The deadly disease claimed the life of a 12-year-old youngster.
According to the local administration, the cause of the epidemic was the extreme warm weather spell affecting Russia’s Far North. Anthrax was last recorded in Yamal 75 years ago, back in 1941.
