After an outbreak of intestinal infection in Olonets school, the head of Karelia Artur Parfenchikov demanded to terminate the contract with the company that supplied food to the school. He instructed the Minister of Health, Mikhail Okhlopkov, to take control of the health of each student and provide families with the necessary medical care and drugs.
“Today I received preliminary results of an epidemiological investigation of a mass illness of pupils in Olonets school №1. They confirm the initial version of the transmission of infection through food and dishes from the sick staff of the cafeteria. In addition, the inspection revealed violations in the organization of the catering unit: storage and delivery of food, processing inventory and others, “Parfenchikov wrote on his vKontakte page.
In the near future, checks are to be carried out in all canteens of the republic’s schools.
