Several villagers in San Vincente, Toledo District in Belize have had to seek medical attention as a result of drinking contaminated water from the village’s water supply reservoir.

The Police and the Pesticide Control Board, PCB have been called in to investigate the drinking of this contaminated water

The PCB has indicated that between Sunday last week and Monday this week, a bottle of Malathion 57 EC formula was emptied in the village’s water supply reservoir which was not a registered formulation in Belize and had been illegally imported into the country.

The active ingredient is like a pesticide, a poison, whose unintended uses can be fatal or cause serious health issues for people.
