A resident of St. Petersburg, by a court decision, was forcibly hospitalized in an anti-tuberculosis medical facility. The decision on this was made by the court following the results of an inspection by the prosecutor’s office of the Central District, where the head physician of the TB dispensary complained. This was reported in the press service of the supervisory department of the Northern capital.

As it turned out, the St. Petersburg resident is registered with the dispensary due to an active form of tuberculosis, but evades compulsory treatment. The court concluded that by his behavior the man “violates the sanitary and anti-epidemic regime and creates a territorial focus of tuberculosis infection.”

As a result, the court satisfied the prosecutor’s demand for hospitalization of the patient in a medical anti-tuberculosis organization.
