114 Hospitalized after Consuming Petrol-laced Rice in Conakry

 

Dozens of people in Conakry, Guinea have been hospitalized after eating rice cooked with petrol on Tuesday, doctors told AFP.

“In all, 114 people were admitted” to the main hospital in Conakry, a doctor, speaking on condition of anonymity, revealed.

The patients suffered stomach aches, diarrhea and vomiting, the doctor said, adding that they were “treated after having consumed rice with sauce prepared with petrol”.

Another doctor confirmed the hospitalization, adding that it appeared that a cook in a small restaurant in Conakry had “mistaken petrol for peanut oil”.

The mass hospitalization caused panic among patients and visitors at the hospital, prompting many to flee as they thought the incoming patients had contracted the Ebola virus – a highly contagious haemorrhagic fever that has claimed more than 200 lives in Guinea.
