Burning of stuff from the mortuary at Mackenzie. I don’t know if they don’t have an incinerator or not but this is what we have to face with. We wake up to smoke every morning for the last few mornings and we’re going to bed with smoke,” the resident explained.The woman also joined with other residents in calling on the relevant authorities to examine the situation to come up with a solution to rectify it.“The relevant authority needs to step in and deal with this because this is causing much illness and problems within persons’ health,” another resident said.Residents also told Guyana Times that they have made contact with the Mayor of Linden and further contact will be made to the Public Health Ministry regarding the situation.This publication contacted a representative from the Linden Hospital Complex regarding the issue; however, it was noted that the Occupational Safety and Health Officer was out for the day.last_img read more
