June 26 2008

In a hotel on the Italian Lake Garda occurred a mass poisoning of British tourists. About 30 people were hospitalized after dinner at a local restaurant - there are even deaths. Medics put the victims a terrible diagnosis - salmonellosis.

The incident took place at the Grand Hotel Gardone. The owner of the hotel suggests that the cause of poisoning and death could become a tourist destination bacterium Salmonella. These rod-shaped enteric bacteria may be causative agents of severe diseases such as typhoid fever and paratyphoid fever.

According to representatives of the British Consulate in Italy, as a result of poisoning a man died, another 16 are in hospital. Representatives of the Consulate note that to determine the causes of death for a tourist would need to conduct an autopsy, reports AP.
