Roman Busargin, the governor of Saratov Region, reported that 15 cases of influenza type A had been diagnosed in a lab. The deadly virus outbreak has triggered a mass train evacuation.
The 12-year-old girl who died on a train on Thursday due to flu-like symptoms was the reason Russia’s Investigative Committee opened a criminal case. The girl was among more than a hundred youngsters who were later brought to the hospital for examinations of their health.
About 125 kids, escorted by adults, were supposedly from the Lugansk People’s Republic in Russia. They were returning from a health camp in Tyumen, Siberia.
One of the girls’ health took a sharp turn on Wednesday night, according to the authorities. Her initial temperature was 39° Celsius. Anticipating this, fever-reducing medications were administered. But according to Mash Ural, a Telegram channel, the girl “turned pale and lost consciousness” a few hours later.
According to a statement from Russian Railways, the train’s leader made an unplanned stop at the closest station in the Saratov Region, in southeast Russia, and an ambulance was dispatched. “Unfortunately, despite the rapid arrival of a medical team at the station, the child could not be saved,” the statement continued.
