More than 40 Swiss soldiers and recruits at the academy in Switzerland were rushed to hospital on late Tuesday after a sudden illness, government sources said.

Switzerland’s defense department said on Tuesday afternoon that 43 recruits and members of the Jassbach Academy in Linden, Bern Canton suddenly suffered from a serious gastric problem, including diarrhea and vomiting.

“As a result, 43 soldiers were forced to rush to hospital and military medical facilities by ambulances and helicopters,” said the statement.

Military spokesman told ATS news agency, four members of the ill-injured were in critical condition.

Authorities are still trying to find the cause of the infection but as a precautionary measure, the camp in Bern has implemented quarantine measures at Jassbach’s well-known site in cyber-defense training, the statement said.
