Rospotrebnadzor warned about fake information about cholera in water that appeared on social networks. These messages are actively distributed in instant messengers and social networks, notes department.
The information is distributed in the form of a recording, on which a female voice asks in no case to drink tap water, filters and keys, but only bottled or thoroughly boiled water, and pass the message on.
However, Rospotrebnadzor emphasizes that the information disseminated about the alleged detection of cholera vibrios in drinking water sources is not true.
“Rospotrebnadzor conducts enhanced control over the quality and safety of drinking water supply. Samples are regularly taken for microbiological, virological and sanitary-chemical indicators. All samples taken meet hygienic requirements,” the agency explained.
Also in Rospotrebnadzor noted that in Russia for a long time there were no cases of cholera.
At the end of April, the agency announced additional measures to prevent cholera.
