Information gathered by Class91.3FM reveals that about 60 students of Archbishop Porter Girls’ Senior High School (SHS) in the Western Region have been hospitalised at the Holy Child Hospital, Fijai, following a case of food poisoning.

Some of the affected students were conveyed to the hospital on their school bus on the evening of Thursday, 28 March 2019.

The rest were sent to the same hospital on Friday morning.

The Medical Superintendent of the hospital, Dr Sylvester Fameye told Class News that the situation has overwhelmed the facility and that logistics are being mobilised to move into the school to attend to more of the affected students.

“There is a vegetable seller at Archbishop Porter, and according to them, some of the vegetables she usually sold to the students, some were left, she kept it in a fridge. So, those who ate from the one that she kept in the fridge started having diarrhoea, and we call that food poisoning,” he disclosed.

Apart from diarrhoea, the affected students also vomited, with some passing out.

Dr Fameye also said he had been told by the headmistress of the school that the poisoning is “not from their kitchen because if it were to be from their kitchen, almost all the students would be affected but in this case a section of the students”.
