All is well in New Zealand: Police confirm 5 sudden deaths in Kaitaia

Five young males have died suddenly in Kaitaia in the past 12 weeks: Police

Police have confirmed at least five young males aged between 17 and 25 have “died suddenly” in Kaitaia since late May.

A spokeswoman said all were “sudden death incidents which we have attended, where our investigations lead us to believe the person has taken their own life”.

“We pass our investigation findings to the Coroner, who will ultimately make a ruling as to how a death has occurred,” she said.

Community leader Ricky Houghton of He Korowai Trust said earlier today that the five deaths reflected “a community in crisis”.

“The people are feeling doomed. There’s a sense of hopelessness and helplessness of the young people,” he said.

NZ Govt launches water supply inquiry after thousands fall sick

“The New Zealand government launched an inquiry on Thursday into the contamination of a regional water supply that has left thousands of people sick with vomiting and diarrhoea” said a report.

The outbreak of campylobacter bacteria, an acute form of gastroenteritis, has sickened around 3,000 people, prompting the government to officials said.

About half of those are in the town of Havelock North on New Zealand’s North Island, about 250 km (155 miles) northeast of the capital Wellington, where schools have been closed and medical facilities overloaded.

“The situation in Havelock North is concerning,” Minister for Health Jonathan Coleman said in a statement. “It is important that the public has confidence in their water supply.”

“New Zealand [deceptively] touts its clean, green image abroad under a ‘100 percent pure [manure]’ campaign to attract tourists, as well as to highlight its food and water safety as a hallmark of its premium [tainted] export products.”

Gastro outbreak: Mushroom farm linked to previous water contamination
“In October last year, E. coli was found in a well at the Brookvale borefield, which draws water from the Te Mata aquifer, providing all of Havelock North’s water.”

MRSA Breakout at Christchurch, Mystery Virus at Southland

Posted by te2ataria on December 18, 2009

Someone Teach Our Doctors, Hospital Staff to Wash Hands

MRSA Outbreak at Christchurch Hospital and Mystery Virus at Southland Hospital Force Surgical and Rehab Ward Closures

Soon after Christchurch Hospital closed one of its surgical wards due to an outbreak of the antibiotic-resistant bacteria MRSA [at least five patients contracted the infection,] Southland Hospital locked down its rehab unit after an outbreak of a mystery virus.

The wards are expected to remain closed to new admissions until all tests on patients and staff return a negative result, various district health board spokespeople were quoted as saying.

Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) could cause severe infections in people with medical preconditions, especially those recovering from a surgery.

“It is a difficult bug to control as it is ever present in the community but for the sake of our patients we work hard to keep it out of our hospitals.” Said Ruth Barclay, Christchurch Hospital acting general manager. [Clearly, you have failed once again.]

Meanwhile, at Southland Hospital, where at least 14 patients in the hospital’s ATR Unit fell ill with vomiting and diarrhea this week, “the District Health Board chief operating officer Lexie O’Shea said tests were being carried out to determine if the illness was the highly infectious norovirus and staff were taking infection control measures [i.e, learn how to wash hands.]”

O’Shea said to the best of her knowledge the virus had not yet affected other part of the hospital, but the unit would remain closed to the public “until we feel we are past the worst of the virus.”
