No more cases have been confirmed except for these five local residents being hospitalized to the Sarata district hospital," Chairman of Sarata District State Administration Anton Loban said.

People in the village are scared, but there is no panic. They are most afraid of the possible destruction of livestock that feeds many families. It is also reported the state of health of those hospitalized residents of Minyalivka has been improved. They receive the necessary treatment in the district hospital. Doctors say the first man who was diagnosed with anthrax will be discharged from the hospital in two days.
