Continuous smoke at Riverton affecting residents of nearby communities

The Ministry of Health has already received a report of a child from Riverton being taken to the Bustamante Hospital for Children for treatment due to the effects of the smoke.

Acting Chief Medical Officer Dr. Jacquline Bissassor McKenzie believes other persons may be suffering health issues in the wake of the situation in Riverton.

"That one case would not represent an increase in numbers, but... even though persons are not coming into the (health) facilies, that does not say that persons are not having symptoms, because, based on the reports that we are hearing, I'm sure that persons are having symptoms," she told RJR News.
