The exact cause of death will be determined at a later time, the department said.

The day before a case of group morbidity with meningococcal infection was known in the warehouse of the market square. At that time, seven cases were reported. This morning it was learned that one of them died.

Specialists sent Ozon employees under the supervision of doctors, and also carried out mass vaccination.

Rospotrebnadzor clarified that it is impossible to get infected with meningococcus through packages, since the causative agent of this infection does not live long on the surfaces of boxes and packages: at room temperature, the bacterium dies in about two hours.

Transmission of the infection usually occurs by airborne droplets, in severe cases it can cause meningitis and meningococcemia.
