In Moscow and Moscow region revealed dysentery

November 15 2005

The other day in kindergarten, "Malvina" Pushkin district, Moscow region fell ill 14 preschool age children and two educators. Yesterday it became clear that pushkintsy contracted dysentery Flexner. And in the metropolitan school number 847, an outbreak of dysentery sonnei - here she lay down 14 students and one teacher.

The difference between the two illnesses is essential. Flexner dysentery has a very high virulence, we have enough to eat 200 microbial cells to become infected. A causative agent of dysentery sonnei to be dangerous for one person should accumulate and multiply to 100 million cells.

While Moscow and regional doctors could not identify which products contained the pathogen. Metropolitan students treated to soup, kebab with mashed potatoes and green peas. But suspicion fell on the ground sour cream, which ran the soup as dysentery Sonne "loves" dairy products.

Podmoskovnye same epidemiologists admit that could be spoiled and soup, and burgers.

It is curious that in the 847-th school ill children only with the 1 st to 7 th grade. Youngsters managed to avoid it, perhaps because they rarely take the free "ration", preferring to buy food at the buffet, said, "MK".
