Rats are threatening citizens of Nizhny Novgorod, Russia
The level of hemorrhagic fever occurrence has become 4 times higher over the last 8 month in Nizhny Novgorod. This information was revealed by the Head of Department of Epidemiological Surveillance Management in Nizhny Novgorod region Galina Chernyaeva during press-conference which has taken place on the 24th of September.

She is sure that situation around such disease as hemorrhagic fever is still rather threatening for all citizens. Urgent solution to this problem is necessary.

“11% of all occasions have taken place on the territory of the capital of Volga region while 85% of hemorrhagic fever occurrence has been registered all over the region. The overall amount of infected districts is 40. The highest level of disease occurrence is in Voskresenskiy, Semenovsky, Bogorodsky, Borsky, Bolshemurashkinsky, Dalnekonstantinovsky and Vetluzhsky districts”.

The main cause of this disease which has already turned out to be a great threat for citizens is increasing number of rats which are rather active during winter and autumn seasons. Rodents are the main transporters of this infection.
Citizens should always keep in mind that disease can be obtained by airborne droplets together with dust which gets to your lungs as well as after contacting with infected person.
