SO, WHAT'S NEW TODAY ? - The answer is SMOKE and more SMOKE.
Yesterday, Doctor Manzanero, Director of Health Services issued a string warning against SMOKE INHALATION, - Yes the amount of smoke which has engulfed many communities, in Belize.
I speak of my community, in the Western District of Belize. - The Cayo District.
For many days and nights, our Communities have been chocked with smoke. - IT comes from every angle, and at distinct hours of the Day.- IT IS WHITE SMOKE, - LIGHT GRAY SMOKE, - GRAY SMOKE and DARK GRAY SMOKE.
WHAT IS SMOKE ?
Smoke is a collection of different Chemical and Gas particles.- It contains hundreds of different Chemicals and fumes.
Smoke inhalation is the primary cause of death in indoor fires.
Smoke inhalation affects your throat, your respiratory ducts, your LUNGS.
SO our many citizens, young and old, have been inhaling smoke for many days and nights, - -
