The Khabarovsk Territory did not confirm the suspicion of the Ebola virus

In the Khabarovsk Territory, the suspicion of the Ebola virus in mothers with a child who arrived from Nigeria was not confirmed. This was reported by the "AMI" agency with reference to the Minister of Health of the Khabarovsk Territory Alexander Vitko.

He reported that on October 13, a mother with 2's one-year-old child arrived in Komsomolsk-on-Amur from Nigeria. The family lives in Nigeria and flew to Russia to visit relatives. The departure from Nigeria was made on October 10, two days later on October 12 was transplanted in Moscow and the number 13 mother and child landed at Komsomolsk-on-Amur airport.

As Vitko notes, the day after the child’s arrival, the child’s temperature rose to 37,4 degrees, and her mother called the doctor who diagnosed SARS at the doctor’s house. When collecting the epidemic history, it was established that the mother with the child arrived from Nigeria, at the same time, the Ministry of Health received information about this woman with the child. "The regional Ministry of Health, together with the CPS of the Khabarovsk Territory, decided to immediately hospitalize the mother and child in the local infectious diseases hospital," he said.

The chief specialist of the department of primary health care and emergency medical care of the Ministry of Health of the Khabarovsk Territory, Evgenia Kurkina, said that "the child was hospitalized with ARVI." “At the same time, I note that the mother of the child feels satisfactory. Therefore, only a child was taken blood for analysis, and sent to Novosibirsk, to test and identify Ebola. We expect a negative result for a number of reasons. First, as I said earlier, this Monday in Nigeria should be the day of the elimination of the virus. Secondly, according to the dynamics of the incidence of a child, antiviral drugs and symptomatic therapy are prescribed. Today, on the third day of observation, his condition is recorded as satisfactory. The temperature of the baby is now at 36,6. For Ebola, this is not typical, as in the presence of a virus, the temperature keeps constantly and no drugs can eliminate it, ”she added.
