Tristan : NO MEDICAL EMERGENCY ON TRISTAN
Submitted by Tristan Times (Sarah Glass) 05.12.2007 (Article Archived on 16.01.2008)

This is just a brief note to all concerned. While there is concern about supplies, there is no killer but affecting the population.

No Medical Emergency on Tristan

 

Yesterday's story was updated to reflect the true situation on Tristan da Cunha.  It is not us who have cried "Wolf" over this.

Typically all it takes to get a media storm going is a good story.  True or not, it goes around the world and people believe it is true.  In this case, the BBC got it wrong but didn't call us or try to contact the Island through this website to find out if it was true.

Yes.  We are getting low on medicines but those in hospital are getting better.  There's no killer virus, either.  We have three flu-like viruses going around the Island that affect more severely the portion of our community that suffers from Asthma.

Another attempt will be made to rectify the media problem if this doesn't work
