- When collecting anamnesis, it turns out that the parents gave the children fruit. We believe that this is a disease of dirty hands and, of course, a seasonal disease. ARVI is actively spreading and children are also not immune from it. There is such a thing as viral diarrhea, which is accompanied by an increase in body temperature, dehydration, and loose stools. These points must be taken into account. At the same time, we do not have a massive intake from one source of infection. I would like to advise parents that they should contact pediatricians in a timely manner and, if necessary, call an ambulance to prevent advanced cases, - the chief physician of the region Rustem Isaev commented on the situation at a press conference in the RSK.
According to the head of the regional health department, PCR testing for CVI in children shows a negative result.
