The Russian delegation led by Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov brought cholera from the G20 summit in India. Lavrov is currently in the US.
A member of the Russian Foreign Ministry delegation contracted cholera during the G20 summit in India, The Moscow Times reports, citing the well-informed Baza channel on Telegram. Diplomats led by Minister Sergei Lavrov returned from the September 11 summit in an Il-96 aircraft.
Upon arrival, the passengers were examined and one of them was diagnosed with cholera. According to telegram channels, the man has been admitted to an infectious disease hospital and is feeling well.
The infected diplomat was on the same plane as Foreign Ministry journalists, while Lavrov and Russian diplomacy spokeswoman Maria Zakharova were on another plane. However, it is possible that they came into contact with the patient during the summit.
Due to the detection of cholera, journalists were placed in quarantine. Some of them would be forcibly hospitalized on September 17. Journalists who had no symptoms of the disease were placed in an infectious disease hospital despite negative tests. There they are kept under a ‘strict regime’: they are not allowed to walk or visit their loved ones.
Shit in the Russian Foreign Ministry delegation. Lavrov flies to the US
Lavrov is currently in New York for the UN General Assembly. The Russian Foreign Minister is expected to hold about 20 bilateral meetings there, including with UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres.
Cholera is a highly contagious bacterial disease of the gastrointestinal tract that is spreading epidemically. The main symptom of cholera is severe diarrhea. Bacteria that can enter the body with contaminated food or water infect the intestinal mucosa and disrupt the functioning of the digestive tract.
If left untreated, the disease can lead to dehydration, seizures and death within hours.
