Village cadres wrongly inform villagers to swallow
Huangmei Township Peoples government announced the incident on the official website of Huangmei County Government on March 1. According to the investigation, when Huangmei town distributed protective materials to the villages and communities on February 25, it explained the use and method of the effervescent tablets. Each effervescent tablet was mixed with 2kg water to spray and disinfect the households home. Luo Xiaohong, the village womens director, accountant and Zhai Jinxia, the grid member, were arranged to distribute materials to each group.
At about 15:00 on February 27, Luo Xiaohong called Jiang Jianjun, the group leader, to collect a group of protective materials from the village committee and distribute them to the villagers, but the purpose and use method of Jiang Jianjuns effervescent tablets were not informed in the phone. Jiang Jianjun called Jiang Jinxiong, a volunteer in the village, to collect it from the village committee because he was working in the group for epidemic prevention and counseling. So Jiang Jinxiong went to the village committee and took a group of protective materials from Luo Xiaohong. Luo Xiaohong explained to Jiang Jinxiong that the effervescent tablets are used for disinfection after mixing with water. Each family has 5 pills. After receiving the protective materials, Jiang Jinxiong handed them over to Jiang Jianjun at the home of Jiang Yanan, a group of villagers. Jiang Jinxiong thought that Jiang Jianjun had informed him to get the materials from the village committee. He should know the purpose and method of the materials, so he didnt explain the use and method of the effervescent tablets to Jiang Jianjun.
At about 9:30 on February 28, Jiang Jianjun, group leader of Xiangyao village, Huangmei Town, Huangmei County, led the village volunteers Yu Qiao, Jiang Daibing and Jiang Yongxin to go door-to-door for temperature test, registration and distribution of the effervescent tablets. Jiang Jianjun thought that the effervescent tablets were the drugs to prevent and control the new crown virus without knowing the purpose and use method of the effervescent tablets, so he told the villagers one for each, Swallowing , some villagers who swallowed the effervescent tablets reported discomfort, and Jiang Jianjun promptly recovered the released effervescent tablets. After that, the town and village cadres sent the villagers who swallowed the effervescent tablets to the county peoples Hospital for treatment.
