Eight sick in Gays

AT LEAST EIGHT people in a St Peter district recovering from a bout of diarrhoea strongly believe their condition had something to do with water they used from a community tank.

Occupants of the three households live metres away from each other and reported that some of their children had also complained of symptoms such as diarrhoea and vomiting since Saturday.

Samiya Edwards, mother of a four-year-old who was the youngest victim at Gays Land, St Peter, said her son Nasari Watson showed signs of a loose stool on Saturday night after using some of the “discoloured” water they used from the tank.

“I took him to his paediatrician with [the diarrhoea] that started after he used the water. She told me to take a sample to the lab but we are not sure if that is the reason as yet because we are still waiting on the results to return” Edwards said over the telephone yesterday.
