MOSCOW, August 7 (Itar-Tass) - A new outbreak of stomach flu has been registered among 50 Russian tourists holidaying in Turkey, the press service of the Russian tourism agency Rostourism said on Wednesday.

“As of August 6 only one child among those who suffered poisoning at Grand Ring Hotel in Turkey’s Beldibi remains in hospital,” the press service said.

Rostourism with reference to Russia’s Consulate-General in Antalya said outbreaks of stomach flu among Russian tourists continue. The Consulate-General in Antalya received the information that mainly children were diagnosed with acute gastroenteritis. Twenty-three cases were registered at Antalya’s Orient Palace and twenty-four cases in Belek’s Jacaranda.

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.

On August 3 Antalya’s healthcare inspection took samples of food, swimming pool and sea water for sanitary and epidemiological tests. The Turkish Ministry of Culture and Tourism said it had sanitized adjacent facilities. Appropriate measures would be taken after tests’ results are known.
