This is a report from reporter KNN Hwang Bo-ram.


This is a daycare center in Busan where collective food poisoning occurred.

Here, 36 people, including natives and cooking workers, showed symptoms of food poisoning on the morning of the 26th, and 11 of them are receiving inpatient treatment.

As a result of epidemiological investigations by the health authorities, Salmonella, which causes food poisoning, came from inpatients, and the same bacteria were detected in watermelons and japchae eaten by children.

To date, Salmonella has been detected in three natives and one cooking worker.

Parents' anxiety is growing.

In particular, the daycare center was accused of responding to procrastination by notifying the health authorities three days after symptoms of food poisoning.
