More than half of the medical and administrative services at Cornwall Regional Hospital (CRH) have now been seriously impacted by noxious fumes believed to have been triggered by a chemical leak that has been dogging the Montego Bay health facility for months.

As a result, Health Minister Dr Christopher Tufton yesterday confirmed that he has requested help from the Pan American Health Organisation (PAHO), which is sending three experts to help local teams deal with the problem.

The PAHO team, Tufton said in a statement, will arrive tomorrow and will join the local team from the Ministry of Health, Western Regional Health Authority (WRHA), CRH, Health Facilities Management Unit, and Environmental Solutions Limited.
