For reference, it was pretty near actually. North Residences BTO in Punggol is only 3km from SMK Tg Puteri which had 260 victims being sent to hospital.

More students in Pasir Gudang suffer breathing difficulties in suspected pollution incident

KUALA LUMPUR: A total of 29 people in the Johor town of Pasir Gudang have been treated in hospital after suffering breathing difficulties, said the health ministry on Friday (Jun 21).

This is up from the 15 students who were reported to have fallen ill on Thursday in a suspected pollution incident.

People from two schools have now been affected - 14 students and two adults from Sekolah Agama Taman Mawar, as well as 13 from SK Pasir Gudang 4.

All patients are in stable condition, said Ministry of Health director-general Noor Hisham Abdullah.

"The Johor State Health Department is still monitoring the area where the problem occurred. The Pasir Gudang Health Clinic was also opened this morning to treat other victims who may have been affected by the incident," he added.

Dr Noor Hisham also advised the public to immediately seek treatment if they experience symptoms such as breathing difficulty, nausea, vomiting, dizziness, headache, muscle cramps and weakness.

Authorities are still trying to determine what's causing people to fall ill with such symptoms.

On Thursday, Health Minister Dzulkefly Ahmad said the victims may have been exposed to poisonous gas.

According to a Malay Mail report, a Johor state official said that the latest cases appear unrelated to the Sungai Kim Kim incident earlier this year, when more than 4,000 people fell ill due to toxic fumes from illegal chemical dumping in the river.

One of the schools affected in the latest incident is 6km away from the area which was hit by pollution previously, said Johor Health, Culture and Heritage Committee chairman Mohd Khuzzan Abu Bakar.

KUALA LUMPUR (THE STAR/ASIA NEWS NETWORK) - The Malaysian government has vowed to take stern action against the culprits behind the chemical pollution incident in the Pasir Gudang district in Johor, says Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad.

"It is rather unfortunate. The incident should not have happened again.

"But we can see that there are some industries that are not too concerned on security.

"That is why we have to identify who polluted the environment there, and we will take stern action against them," he told reporters on the sidelines of the 33rd Asia-Pacific Roundtable on Tuesday (June 25).

All educational institutions in Pasir Gudang district were ordered to close for three days following chemical pollution in the area, said the state Education Department.

There are 475 such institutions in Pasir Gudang; they comprise 111 primary and secondary schools, three higher education institutions, 14 private and international schools and 347 private kindergartens.

In a statement, Education Department director Azman Adnan said the schools would be closed for three days from Tuesday to Thursday (June 25-27) to allow the authorities to work on clearing the pollution.

"All principals and headmasters have been told to inform their students, teachers, parents and staff about the closure."

To date, more than 100 students from over 30 schools have been affected due to the air pollution, which surfaced last Thursday.

This is the second time in three months that the authorities have ordered all schools in the district to be closed because of pollution.

In March, all 111 schools were also ordered to close following toxic fumes coming from Sungai Kim Kim.

Meanwhile, victims affected by the latest pollution are upset and puzzled over how such an incident could happen just three months after the previous case.

They also expressed anger over how the authorities are handling the incident.

SMK Tanjung Puteri Resort student Noor Ameileyana Fadzlee, 13, said she was previously warded for two days at the Sultan Ismail Hospital for breathing difficulties.

"Luckily, it was not that bad this time and the doctor told me that I could go home after this," she said at the Pasir Gudang Indoor Stadium on Monday.

Her mother Herlina Muslimin, 40, said she was anxious when she found out about her daughter's condition.

"I was worried when I received a call from her teacher asking me to come directly to Pasir Gudang Indoor Stadium. After the first incident, I thought it would not happen again. It's upsetting to see my daughter suffering from the symptoms again," she said.

Ms Senahni Hamzah, 44, mother of 16-year-old Siti Jasliena Jumaat of SMK Tanjung Puteri Resort, also said this was the second time her daughter has been affected by the pollution.

"When I reached the school, they informed me that an ambulance had already taken her to the operation centre, so I immediately rushed here," said Ms Senahni.

Trader Normah Ahmad, 63, said she is baffled as to why this keeps happening.

"This is also affecting our livelihood as many people are afraid to buy food in this area.

"I hope the authorities will take this seriously," she said.

She added that business went on as usual as there had been no orders to shut down the shops.

PASIR GUDANG (JOHOR) - More than 70 students in Johor's Pasir Gudang district were referred to hospital after toxic fumes in the area caused breathing difficulties and vomiting.

But senior Malaysian officials on Monday (June 24) appeared no closer to explaining the cause.

Housing and Local Government Minister Zuraida Kamaruddin had said at first the air was polluted by fumes from incomplete cleaning up of the toxic waste dumped into Sungai Kim Kim in March, but later backtracked and said it was not related to the March incident.

Health Minister Dzulkefly Ahmad said the symptoms displayed by the victims were different from those seen in the earlier river dumping incident.

Johor Menteri Besar Sahruddin Jamal also dismissed claims that the fumes originated from Sungai Kim Kim.

As of 3pm on Monday, 75 students were referred to Hospital Sultan Ismail with only four still warded.

At the Pasir Gudang Indoor Stadium where most of the victims were given first treatment and in housing estates around it, parents of the affected students told The Straits Times they were very upset that this is happening again.

One of them is small time trader Jamaluddin Abdul Malik, whose 13-year-old daughter is a victim of the latest incident. The teenager was also one of the victims of the Sungai Kim Kim pollution three months ago.

"My daughter is very weak now and is currently in the hospital. Even if she is discharged, I am worried about letting her go back to school because we won't know if the pollution will happen again," he said. "We don't feel safe here. I feel that our air is not safe to breathe," he added.

Some suspected that the toxic waste that was previously dumped in Sungai Kim Kim could be the culprit again.

"Maybe they didn't clean the river thoroughly the last time," mused teacher Siti Mariam Saim, whose nine-year-old son, was vomiting non-stop on Monday, while her six-year-old daughter, was having a headache.

"The symptoms displayed were similar to the Sungai Kim Kim incident except this time it is less serious," she said, adding that the air has been smelling of "corroded iron" for the past three days, especially after it rained.

Concerned with what is happening, restaurant owner Rafea Abdullah stopped his daughter from going to school.

He went to his daughter's school on Monday, located about 500m from Sungai Kim Kim and was one of the first schools that was closed during the crisis.

"I went up to the top floor of the building and immediately I felt nauseous, headache and had difficulties breathing, I knew then something was wrong," he said.

He said he will be "very disappointed" if it turns out that the toxic waste from Sungai Kim Kim is again causing the problem.




In March, 111 schools in Pasir Gudang were shut for two weeks following chemical pollution of the river, which flows into the Strait of Johor just north of Pulau Ubin.

The disaster caused 5,848 people to seek medical treatment after inhaling toxic fumes from the river.

On Monday, Bernama news agency quoted Datuk Zuraida Kamaruddin as saying that initial investigations found the cleaning contractor who was supposed to clear the Sungai Kim Kim waste did not do a thorough job.

"As the hazardous materials have been exposed to wind and rain, the uncontrolled air borne substances may have spread and affected the people once again," she told reporters in Putrajaya.

But in a later statement, she said from the latest information received, the hazardous materials in the river were already cleared and had been disposed of.

Health Minister Dzulkefly said the latest incident is not similar to Sungai Kim Kim. "The victims of Sungai Kim Kim were warded in the ICU (intensive care unit) but for this incident, the victims were just experiencing vomiting and shortness of breath," he said at a news conference at the Pasir Gudang stadium on Monday. "These (symptoms) will not stay in the body for too long, it will be excreted."

Johor chief minister Sharuddin Jamal in dismissing that toxic waste from Sungai Kim Kim is again to blame, said: "For now, we have been informed that it is not the same."

The Chemical Department will take two days to identify the chemicals involved, he said.

Still, despite residents' concerns, life went on as usual on Monday.

Businesses at the affected areas were operating as normal and there was no sense of panic in the air.

There was a sense of inevitability that they have to put up with this.

"Of course I am afraid that this will affect my health but what can I do? I need to earn a living," said a goreng pisang (banana fritters) seller who wanted to be known as Kak Non.

She said she did smell something funny in the air, but has not felt the need to seek treatment. "Life still has to go on."

Hi, I am looking for an AP and a humidifier and am hoping for some advice.
I have a young boy and my wife has allergy rhinitis, she also had asthma during her childhood but seems to be OK now.
The 3 of us sleep in an AC room every night and although I keep the windows shut for the room the whole day, this bedroom always seems to have more dust than the other rooms with windows open.
We vacuum and change bedsheets every week. But looks like not enough.
So I'm considering an AP and did quite a bit of reading and found the IQAir health pro 250 (expensive initial and recurring cost) and the honeywell 18450 as the shortlisted units. Heard both are medical grade. Would appreciate your advice as I notice people talking about xiaomi.
I'm looking for a humidifier as the AC seems to dry out mouth and skin alot and my son recently started nosebleeds. I went to check on the various types of humidifiers and am even considering a DIY.
Appreciate any help as u can see that the costs will add up over the years and I hope not to buy something which usnt useful for my situation.
