BISHKEK, August 26 (Itar-Tass) - The death case of a 15-year-old teenager of bubonic plague was confirmed in Issyk-Kul Region in Kyrgyzstan, the republican Health Ministry told Itar-Tass on Monday.
“The teenager sought turned for medical assistance in the district hospital complaining for running temperature and bubonic inflammations on August 22,” the ministry stated. “He was immediately taken to hospital in the surgery ward,” the ministry said. He was transferred to the intensive therapy ward of the regional clinic several hours later, because the doctors suspected plague. However, closer to the evening on August 22 the ill teenager died “despite the measures taken at the hospital.” The bubonic plague diagnosis was confirmed only on Monday after laboratory tests.
Over an emergency situation in Issyk-Kul Region several groups of doctors specializing in infectious diseases were dispatched from Bishkek to take necessary anti-epidemic measures. It was already found that 102 people, including 19 doctors, were in contact with the late teenager over the last few days, all of them are isolated now and are undergoing preventive treatment. The preventive medical consultations are given to the residents of Ak-Sui district, where the demised teenager lived. According to the preliminary version, he contracted bubonic plague after eating meat of a marmot, which he caught on the highland plain. “There are no prerequisites for panicky moods, the situation is fully controlled by medical staff, all measures were taken to avert an epidemic,” the health ministry assured local residents.
“About 800 people from Ak-Sui district already passed a preventive medical examination,” the republican Ministry of Emergency Situations noted.
