Cases of hepatitis A registered in Moscow, medics blame beer

09.06.2005, 19.13

MOSCOW, June 7 (Itar-Tass) - Cases of hepatitis A among the people, who drank beer produced by OAO Rzhevpivo distilleries have been registered in Moscow.

A total of six cases of viral hepatitis A were registered in Moscow between May 2 and May 8, the Russian Federal Service for Consumer Right Protection (Rospotrebnadzor) said in an official report Thursday.

All the six people were hospitalised, and two of them, a father and son, said they had made a trip to a place in the Tver region southwest off Moscow where they drank beer produced by Rzhezpivo, located in the same region.

Apart from beer, Rzhevpivo sells in Moscow the mineral water Rhzevskaya.

We identified three shops selling the companys produce, and Moscow Citys chief sanitary doctor issued an instruction to stop its sales here,

Beer puts 404 in hospital
10/06/2005 20:33 - (SA)

Moscow - At least 404 people, including 97 children, have been rushed to hospital so far in a Hepatitis A outbreak in southwest Russia's Tver region, reported Itar-Tass news agency on Friday.

Vitaly Sinoda, the chief doctor of the region's health services said: "Fifty-two new cases have been admitted to hospital in the past 24 hours."

A number of cases had also been recorded in Moscow and the western province of Smolensk.

The outbreak was believed to have been caused by a local beer, produced by the Rjevpivo brewery. Sales of the beer had been suspended in Moscow as a result.

Hepatitis A was a highly contagious viral infection of the liver.
