According aif.ru, the virus in Europe for 43 people died on June 24, 2011 3000 802 registered cases in Europe, USA and South America.
Until recently, the Federal Service banned the import of European vegetables to the Russian market, for fear of the terrible explosion of an intestinal infection. However, on June 24 received information that Gennady Onishchenko discussed revenues vegetables to Russia in five EU countries, and said that sign agreements with these countries will be possible in the evening of the same day, reports Life News Online.
It is noteworthy how the approach the chief sanitary doctor of Russia to the possibility of epidemics of intestinal infection in E.coli variation on the European producers of vegetables and meat.
Mr. Onishchenko in his statements a few days ago said that the cause of the disease is not in cucumbers or beans. "The source of infection may be animals, cattle, which are fed antibiotics, which means that they are less resistant to victory over the little-studied viruses. Well as natural selection of animals that are used for growing vegetables without proper treatment."
Moreover, according to Gennady Onishchenko epidemic in civilized Europe released from control. Therefore, there is a risk that the infection can be spread by household and even through water. How to protect Russians from infection, given that the tourist season is in full swing?
A number of our countrymen, holidaying in Europe is not reduced. And, therefore, is not reduced and even increased over time, the threat of invasion of Russian tourists infectious diseases. Medical institutions in which patients will be treated with symptoms of intestinal and urinary diseases, should pay special attention to history — Information about the conditions of the patient, which could lead to the disease, said the chief medical officer. That is, if a person says that he became ill after visiting the European countries where the same eating cucumbers and beans, physicians should take such a patient under special control.
Meanwhile, scientists from around the world (including the Russian center in Obolensk) study mutated strain. So far, the answer to the question: how to beat the disease and stop the epidemic — no.
During the time elapsed since the first ban on European vegetables, meat and later, vigorously fighting Western manufacturers for return to the Russian market. CPS determined the terms of renewal of deliveries: the signing of a guarantee certificate. These documents should confirm the safety of exported products. Netherlands, Denmark, Poland, and Spain, and Germany, have already applied for the recovery of exports to Russia, thus agreeing with the demand of Russia. Applications for renewal of export filed Spain and Germany. The rest of the EU countries have not yet submitted the Russians names of laboratories and authorities to issue certificates.
These documents must specify the place of origin of the product, the guarantee that it is safe and does not contain dangerous E. coli. "Each party arrives on Russian vegetable stalls will be investigated thoroughly, because the infection has already been released, now we have to re-take it under control" — said Gennady Onishchenko.
Also, the head of Rospotrebnadzor said all ponds and rivers in Moscow will also be tested for E.coli coli and other infections.
In May, an outbreak of intestinal infection was originally recorded in the north of Germany, in Lübeck. At first it was assumed that the carrier of dangerous bacteria are salad cucumbers from Spain, but this hypothesis was not confirmed, reports guardian ..
Sales salad greens — the largest item in Spanish exports, literally collapsed. Madrid protested, Minister of Agriculture of Andalusia ate cucumbers live on TV to strengthen the Spanish position. And just a week ago, Germany acknowledged that a mistake was made.
In Germany, continued to sound official recommendation residents not to eat raw cucumbers, tomatoes and lettuce. German Agriculture Minister Ilse Aigner (Ilse Aigner) stated that "hundreds of tests" found that the majority of cases ate any of the above, especially in cases in the north.
Then, experts said that the source of infection could be a farm in Lower Saxony, which supplies to markets in the germinated soybeans and other grains that are used in salads and main dishes.
In early June, the specialists of the European Centre for Disease Control and Prevention reported that the cause of disease is a rare strain of E. coli belonging to serotype (variation within a subspecies of bacteria or viruses) 0104: H4.
On May 30, 2011 Russia has imposed a complete ban on the import of vegetables from Spain and Germany. Russian authorities said that the abolition of restrictions under certain conditions, in particular when it is found the source of the infection.
June 2, 2011 CPS introduced ban on all thermally unprocessed vegetables from the European Union in connection with the distribution in Europe of an intestinal infection. Chief sanitary doctor Gennady Onishchenko has suspended importation into the territory of the Russian Federation and the turnover of berries produced in the EU after 15 April 2011 The import of strawberries, cranberries, blueberries, cranberries and other berries.
5 June, German authorities said that the source of infection is likely to have bean sprouts from a farm in Lower Saxony. Despite increasingly confident statements, June 6, tests have shown negative results. German authorities said that the farm can still be a source of infection, even if the tests come negative.
Soybean seedlings seemed to blame the epidemic, because in the past have been seen in cases of outbreaks of serious epidemics E. coli in the United States and Japan. These beans are grown in water, heated to 38 ° C — a temperature ideal for the prosperity of the bacteria. U.S. scientists warn that young children, the elderly and people with weakened immune systems should not eat these beans raw. Now, this advice has been adopted by the Agency and the British Food Standards.
Hugh Pennington (Hugh Pennington), a professor who led the investigation in the two outbreaks E. coli in the UK, said: "They conducted a pilot study on infected seedlings and see what happens to bacteria in germination — you can get a million increase in the concentration of bacteria. It looks like an incubator cultivates this bacterial culture. "
June 22, 2011 the EU and Russia have signed an agreement to allow the immediate resumption of deliveries of European vegetables to Russia.
The spread of infection and the consequent embargo on products to Russia is being developed European countries and in the political sphere. Russia angered the European Union imposed, until the relationship between Germany and Spain have continued to deteriorate, the ban on imports of fresh vegetables writes guardian.
In Luxembourg, the Spanish Health Minister Leire Pajín (Leire Pajin) said at a meeting with the ministers of health of other EU member states, "We want compensation for the severe and irreparable harm done to Spain. We condemn the slow reaction and are concerned about how this crisis was conducted from the beginning. "
