Food poisoning outbreak at Tavatui camp sends 88 children for treatment
Following the outbreak, 37 campers were sent to nearby Novouralsk hospital, and 21 children were sent to receive medical treatment in Yekaterinburg. Additionally, 25 children were well enough to be taken home by their parents, while five children received treatment at Tavatui's infirmary, The Moscow Times reports.
Health officials have quarantined the camp to prevent the spread of infection. The 210 campers who were not ill have been transported back to their homes by Novouralsk's municipal administration.
Sverdlovsk governor Yevgeny Kuivashev has ordered an investigation to determine the precise cause of the poisoning. Meanwhile, other area camps are being inspected to prevent additional poisonings.
Each of the 88 children with symptoms of poisoning has been reported as being in good or satisfactory condition, according to The Moscow Times.
