The cadets range in age from 15 to 22 years old.
The Odesa regional police disclosed the outbreak on Nov. 18, specifying that cadets from both the Bezkorovainyi Naval Lyceum and the Naval Institute of the Odesa Maritime Academy were affected.
These educational institutions maintain separate kitchens, prompting law enforcement’s inquiry into the food suppliers.
Legal proceedings have been initiated under Part 1 of Article 325 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine, addressing “violations of sanitary rules and norms for the prevention of infectious diseases and mass poisonings.”
Expert examinations have been ordered as part of the investigation.
This is the second case of food poisoning at the Bezkorovainyi Naval Lyceum, after 46 cadets were hospitalized on September 25.
