Two children and their mother died in Timisoara after the deratization of the building in which they live. Other tenants also came to the doctor's care. Checks are being carried out in two other locations in Timisoara where extensive disinsection and pest control operations have recently been performed
Everything happened on Mioritei street at no. 10. The first arrival at the Children's Hospital Louis Turcanu, on Saturday, was the baby of only 10 days, who was known to drown with milk reached in the lungs in large quantities. Despite the desperate efforts of the doctors to save him, it died out shortly.
The ambulance was then called on Sunday to another apartment in the block, where doctors picked up a 3-year-old boy who had stomach and headaches and vomiting. In this case, the parents initially refused to be admitted, so that they could be re-admitted to the Emergency Room, because their condition worsened. The child died, and on Monday morning his mother died, at the age of 29.
The doctors then intervened for another 3 children and 3 adults in the building, with the same symptoms, who were admitted.
Doctors and police have been on the alert and are trying to determine what happened.
"15 calls were started on Saturday, from 8.00 in the morning, from the same address. The first child, 10 days old, was supposed to be drowned in milk. Then, a second child of three years died, and now the latter's mother. The exact cause is not known, we are waiting for the autopsy result"He said for opiniatimisoarei.ro Florin Crisan, spokesman for Timis Ambulance Service.
Mioritei Street was completely blocked and intervention forces were mobilized, including the Biological, Radiological and Nuclear Research team (CBRN).
From the first information, it seems that in the block in question, one of the studios, formerly of nonfamilists, would have recently made a large operation of disinsection and deratization. It is not yet known whether or not it has anything to do with misfortune.
The building will be evacuated and the tenants who were in the apartments will be subjected to thorough medical checks.
"The Emergency Situations Committee was convened by the sub-prefect of Timis county. There are gathered all the authorities related to this topic. ISU has sent investigative teams to find out if there are any toxic substances. And from other counties, crews were sent to help the crew from Timisoara. The decision before the Committee that was reported to us is that with two minibuses and a first-aid crew, those who are currently in the block for investigations are evacuated. These are the measures that are being taken now. We want to find out how the two children arrived and the lady who died, where they had contacts and we will see with what results the colleagues investigating the area will come. The issue with disinfection or deratization I don't know if it has been confirmed yet. We do not want to speculate until we have definitive conclusions. I'm waiting to be called to tell me what the conclusions are. We are in contact with those from the Ministry of Health. The necessary measures must be taken", Said Raed Arafat, State Secretary in the Ministry of Internal Affairs, for opiniatimisoarei.ro.
"Following the meeting of the Committee for Emergency Situations, the tenants of the entire building were evacuated, out of the 200 apartments. The health status of all those who live in the block and were divided between the county and the municipal hospital is evaluated. Currently, CBRN research is being carried out by ISU Timis and ISU Bihor. A mobile command point was organized and the data are centralized by STS and UPU", Send ISU representatives Timis, writes opiniatimisoarei.ro.
Checks are being carried out in two other locations in Timisoara where extensive disinsection and deratization operations have recently been carried out, such as the one in the block on Mioritei street in the Student Complex, where two children and the mother of one of them died, and another 3 children and 3 adults have been admitted to the hospital, with headaches, abdominal pain and vomiting.
