PART III.

Sanitary Matters.

CHAPTER I.—Reports on Epidemics.

Whenever symptoms of contagious or infectious diseases, either
among people or cattle, are observed in any place within their
Consular district, State Consular Officers are required to immediately
notify the full facts of the case to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs,
the Ministry of Commerce and Industry, and the Ministry of
Finance. The information should be telegraphed. If there is no
telegraph office at the place of the Consular residence, steps must
be taken to have the message sent from the nearest telegraph office.1
In notifying the authorities in Russia of the outbreak of an epidemic,
it is at all times desirable that such notification should be made
before the official announcement of the epidemic. To do this, the
Consular Officer is recommended to avail himself of trustworthy
private information.

Elective Consular Officers are required to make their reports to
the State Consuls to whom they are subordinate.

So long as the epidemic lasts, the Consul will send a weekly report
upon the same, stating whether any Russian ship has visited the
infected places and communicated with the inhabitants, whether she
has had any cases of illness on board, the time of her departure, her
destination, &c., &c. As soon as the epidemic has ceased, the
Consul must notify the fact to the Ministry for Foreign Affairs, the
Ministry of the Interior, the Ministry of Commerce and Industry
and the Ministry of Finance, and also to the superior frontier
authorities.2

On hearing that a Russian ship calling at a port in his district
is about to proceed to a place, entrance to which may be
accompanied with considerable danger owing to the state of the public
health, the Consular Officer must acquaint the Captain of the vessel
with the facts of the case and at the same time advise him as to
whether there is any other port in the same country at which he may
touch with safety.3

Special regulations are to be observed in case of plague.
Information of the outbreak and development of the epidemic and of all
sanitary measures which are taken against it must be communicated

1 Cons. Reg., Art. 96. 2 Cons. Reg., Art. 97.

3 Cons. Reg., Art. 98.
