3 Sick With Anthrax




MOSCOW -- Three people fell sick with anthrax in Siberia after killing calves diagnosed as suffering from the potentially deadly disease, and were hospitalized in stable condition, the Health Ministry said Friday.


The three were hospitalized in Novosibirsk, where health officials identified a total of 59 people who had contact with the 13 sick animals.


The rest of those people are under medical supervision and receive drugs as a prevention measure, the ministry said, according to Itar-Tass.
