‘As of October 7, 12 more people were hospitalized to a hospital with acute intestinal poisoning. Currently, 36 patients (29 children and seven adults) are hospitalized in the infectious department,’ the law enforcement officers claimed.
It is noted that a criminal proceeding is initiated after the fact of the massive poisoning at the pre-school establishment. The responsible for the incident faces a fine up to 100 non-taxable minimums, arrest up to six months or deprivation of liberty for up to three years.
Reportedly, the outbreak of intestinal infections is recorded at the “Rainbow” children's educational institution in Netishyn city, Khmelnytsky region.
Earlier, the official specified that the reason for the mass poisoning could be the disinfection of the drinking water with Manganese that the local administration used instead of chlorine.
'They ran out of chlorine, so the water was partially disinfected with Manganese... This is the reason for this horrible event', Lysiansky claimed.
After the mass poisoning incident in the militant-held town of Makiivka, dozens of people turned for medical aid. As of Thursday evening, the number of those who suffered grew from 43 to 87. Four patients are children; all 87 are in moderately grave condition, Lysiansky wrote.
'That's all we managed to find out. The information is heavily blocked by the representatives of occupant administration. They told us that the patients are in a moderately grave condition', reads the post.
