According to the Prosecutor's Office's audit of the mass incident, sanitary and epidemiological standards and guidelines at the educational institutions were violated by the Yekateirnburg Municipal Unitary Enterprise's dining hall program, which is tasked with catering the school in accordance with the municipal contract, Oblgazeta.ru reports.
The audit also found that the lunches provided to some of the injured students contained the norovirus. Norovirus is responsible for approximately 90 percent of gastroenteritis worldwide. It is transmitted by fecal contact with food, water or person-to-person contact.
