Six children vacationing at the Artek children’s camp in Crimea have been diagnosed with coronavirus. This was reported by Rossiyskaya Gazeta.
The Crimean Ministry of Health said that the sick children were taken to a hospital in Simferopol. No one has pneumonia, COVID-19 is mild.
“Artek has identified isolated cases of a new coronavirus infection. The children had symptoms like ARVI. The analysis revealed a coronavirus. Rospotrebnadzor conducted an epidemiological investigation so that the disease would not spread further in the camp, ”the Ministry of Health said.
Those who have been in contact with the sick are sent to the observatories. The camp is being disinfected.
Earlier, doctor Andrei Tyazhelnikov recommended getting vaccinated for Russians planning to go on vacation. He noted that people tend to plan travel in advance, so he recommended that vaccinations be included in the vacation preparation plan. And for the vaccination to be effective, you should receive both doses of the drug before leaving. The specialist explained that a stable immunity to coronavirus does not form immediately, but some time after the introduction of the second component of the vaccine, and in the period between two doses there is a risk of infection. He stressed that against the background of a tense epidemiological situation, it is risky to go on vacation without vaccination.
