JOHOR BARU: About 15 students from Sekolah Agama Taman Mawar in Pasir Gudang suffered from breathing and vomiting, which is believed to cause air pollution on Thursday (June 20).
Ibrahim Omar, the chief of Fire and Rescue Station in Gudang told reporters that he had received an emergency call at 3.39.
“When we arrived, we found around 15 students with such symptoms and five of them were sent to Sultan Ismail for further treatment,” he said in a statement.
This happens after Sungai Kim Kim's toxic contamination led to more than 4,000 people being ill and led to 111 school closures in the Pasir Gudang area in March.
At the same time, Dr Selahudden Abdul Aziz, Director of Health at Johor, said the department was investigating the cause of the disease.
"When we find the main reasons, we'll give a statement," he said when he contacted.
