According to him, irregularities were revealed in the camp kitchen and in the buildings.

They concern sanitary and technical issues as well as personal hygiene. A decision was made to close the camp, – Slesarev said.

The father of one of the camp visitors told, that about 200 children had been poisoned in the camp earlier. According to him, the children had stomach aches and had diarrhea.

Meanwhile, this fact has not yet been confirmed in Rospotrebnadzor.

July 17 in Yevpatoria, 54 people were hospitalized with signs of food poisoning – 49 children (from Tatarstan), who had a rest in the camp “Luchisty”, and five employees of the institution. Their condition in the Crimean “Ministry of Health” was rated as moderate severity. By Thursday morning, July 18, the number of people taken to hospital increased to 57 people.
