Sudden Deaths in Barbados Linked to ‘usual causes’

Dr. Kenneth George, Acting Chief Medical Officer

Dr. Kenneth George, Acting Chief Medical Officer

Barbados Underground (BU) condemns the malicious act by agents using social media platforms to propagate the message that the new water meter installed by the Barbados Water Authority (BWA) is responsible for the sudden deaths that have caused Barbadians alarm in recent weeks. Barbadians everywhere must have breathed a collective sigh of relief yesterday when the BWA issued a press release to dispel the false claim. The BWA’s message was supported by the Acting Chief Medical Officer who indicated that “…preliminary reports indicate that recent sudden deaths in Barbados were linked to “the usual causes of sudden death in Barbados and universally…acute myocardial infarction (heart attack), stroke, brain haemorrhage, acute pulmonary embolism (clotting in the lungs) and acute arrhythmia.”

The unfortunate incident affords the BU household the opportunity to offer a few observations.

Why did the government through its state agency the BWA require 72 hours to issue a press release to attack the vicious rumour? In the absence of a decisive communication strategy by the government and the BWA the rumour trended to an unproductive national discussion. We acknowledge that the BWA’s Communications Specialist issued a statement a couple days ago. We also acknowledge she promised that the BWA would have held press conference.

Why has the BWA with its state of the art headquarters on the hill not posted the press release on its company website?   If there is another BWA website BU will retract. If the vicious rumour originated on social media why does the BWA not update its Facebook page as a good strategy to counter? Guess what, the BWA does NOT have an active Facebook page. If the late prime minister David Thompson were alive he would have instructed his people to share the press release with BU. He understood a little about managing information in the social media space.There is a lot the Stuart led government can learn from Joseph Goebbels who was a minister in Hitler’s administration.

To date we have had the BWA management condemning the vicious rumour. Chief Medical Officer George has supported the BWA’s position based on preliminary reports. Guess what, the Democratic Labour Party through its General Secretary George Pilgrim has started another rumour.  In a media release yesterday Pilgrim hinted that the water rumour is possibly politically motivated to make the government look bad. If Pilgrim has evidence to support his ‘insinuation’’ BU urge him to take the evidence to the DPP.

Read full text of the BWA’s release:-

Over the last few days, erroneous reports have been circulating in the social media, suggesting that there have been sudden deaths associated with lead from the new HYDRUS Ultrasonic water meters.

We want to assure our customers that there is no lead contamination of our water supply from the new meters or any other device attached to the water supply network. It should be noted that the procurement of these meters followed stringent guidelines, consultation and approval of the Barbados National Standards Institute (BNSI). We have found no proof of their being rejected anywhere.

In addition, the meters: –

  1. Are made out of plastic and brass connections that DO NOT contain lead.
  1. Are manufactured in Germany and have been tested and approved for use in the water supply industry for metering of cold potable water and hot water by the German Environmental Agency under the German Drinking Water Ordinance of December 2013.
  1. Meet or exceed the following specifications and testing methods as well as those in the following Standards: OIML R 49-1 Edition 2006 (E) and ISO 4064-1:2005(E)/BS EN 14154-1:2005 +A1:2007(E) Class C and Class E1 specifications including all annexes.
  1. Are also currently being used in the following twenty-two (22) countries: –

Germany, France, Ireland, Spain, Austria, Denmark, Hungary, Poland, China, St. Lucia, Bahamas, Jamaica, Colombia, Brazil, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, Oman, Qatar, Bahrain, United Arab Emirates, Australia, Guinea and South Africa.

The Barbados Water Authority is charged with the responsibility of providing water and sewerage services as well as the monitoring, controlling, managing and protecting the water resources in the public’s interest.

We take this mandate very seriously and over the years, we have provided and continue to supply safe drinking water that exceeds the World Health Organization’s (WHO) Drinking Water Guidelines and we have adhered to other appropriate industry standards in the choice of materials and equipment used in designing, constructing and operating of the entire water supply infrastructure.

The Barbados Water Authority in conjunction with the Environmental Protection Department (EPD), Ministry of Environment and Drainage and the Environmental Health Inspectorate of the Ministry of Health have a very comprehensive and long standing water quality monitoring program. This programme involves the bacteriological and chemical testing and analysis of water samples through the Government Analytical Services Laboratory and MDS Laboratories in Florida.

In addition, wide screen analysis of water samples is done on a bi-annual basis and includes testing for heavy metals and pesticides. The most recent samples were done in March 2016. Results from the water quality tests and analysis done over the years, show that the lead content in our water is below detection limits and meets the allowable drinking water standards. The analysis of the water samples is done through accredited laboratories. Furthermore, our water is classified as hard and tends to form a carbonate precipitate inside the pipes that would prevent lead leaching.

We again assure the public that the new HYDRUS Ultrasonic Water Meter manufactured by DIEHL Metering is free of lead and water provided by the Barbados Water Authority is safe to drink. (END)

    Alvin, (Walter’s new sidekick who is no longer the rose against thorn in the CLICO’s side) we couldn’t agree with you more.

    Would you also call for the immediate removal of the Coverley death trap which has proven its ability to claim young lives? Now how much is a huge lawsuit when compared to old Nurse Wilkinson’s claim?
    Would you also advise the dead child’s mother to sue her Insurance company?

    After all, the Maloney Promontory is a known illegal erection for which the same CTO and CTP have demanded its removal. So from the Bermuda Triangle to the Maloney Death Trap is just a short drive to Hades.

    @David with respect Mr Blogmaster but Dr Lorde’s figures are too sparse to make any serious interpretations. The year over year decline is a good thing but….

    But, what are the details for the last five years for the last 10 years?
    … are the trends down for those periods, about same , cyclical?
    … and of course one also needs to look at related types of issues like hypertension et al.

    These numbers give an opening but more is needed. Alvin is an interesting scientist to adopt such a positive attitude based on such a minimalist two year data stream.

    “Well Well,
    If you want to walkabout something that was rejected, that is dangerous to Bajans, you should check out those wire barriers on the ABC highway. These were banned in Canada before the ABC highway was built, and the government of the day that awarded the contract to a Canadian Company to construct, wilfully allowed them to install these barriers. They cause death. I have a friend whose sister was decapitated when the car in which she was a passenger went into one of those crash barriers.They were banned and should never have been used, and they should have been removed. Even today so many years later they are still there. I find the Chief Technical officer at MTW very delinquent in allowing them to be still there, and even more so where, even after the crash barriers near the ‘Bermuda TriANGLE” have been publicized in the Newspapers, by the Road Safety Association, there has been no barriers, no indication of the danger of thaT STRETCH OF ROAD.

    It is sheer lawlessness and dereliction of duty.
    Hamilton Hill, were you not saying the same thing in 2008, and 2013?”

    Alvin.., it’s not something I have ever been aware of…yet 8 years later, you have not petitioned your government to remove the death barriers that you are aware are deadly, has always been there. I drive up and down there while in Bim and do not know they exist as i am sure do thousands of others including tourist, you speak to government ministers, speak to them about the death and injuries waiting to happen as a result of them doing nothing to remove the threat to life and limb.

    And for the 1000th time, I consider BLP an extension of DLP and vice versa, there is no difference in their indifferent attitudes to the lives of the people on the island, both groups care only for self, self-enrichment and what they could get from their sojourn as ministers who should be representing the people and not themselves….your above post proves my point.

    The point the numbers serve to clarify is that the sudden deaths of recent are NCD related. Agree that historical analysis over a longer period paints a more vivid picture of the state of pubic health. In fact the CMO promised to share the result of a deeper analysis.

    Adrian Lorde This is raw preliminary data. Annette, what’s happening now is nothing new. Our Social media has highlighted and the Nation reporting more. Note that more women than men had strokes and heart attacks. The age groups are not noted here, nor their ages. Up to 50% of those who get heart attacks may die suddenly.John, April to June will not show any increase in numbers of deaths. I don’t have the stats yet as to how many actually died. What I am showing that what has been highlighted now has been occurring daily in Barbados and occurred even more frequently in the past. There are 3 strokes every 2 days in Barbados!

    Most,if not all of the so-called Reconditioned Cars, imported in to Barbados from Japan , over a period of years, came in without being fitted with catalytic converters, after Japan had made it mandatory that all newly manufactured vehicles be fitted with Catalytic converters, and those already in use, be retrofitted. It was considered uneconomical to retrofit many of their used cars with the converters,and as a consequence, the converterless used cars were dumped on Barbados, and other third world countries, who do not have the first clue what Clean Emission means as it relates to motor vehicles.

    Because the government was foolish enough to believe that after spending billions on education that any Bajan old enough to read would know that lead poisoning does not cause sudden death.

    Just less than 20 years ago we were all happily using leaded gasoline, and now we panic because some idiot with a smart phone says that lead is in the meters and that it is killing us.

    That “idiot with a smartphone” is no different from the same educated Bajans who believe that they can catch the ‘cold’ from the rain or those that sprint out of the rain and gallop to be close to a fire.

    Just remember that some of the greatest kill-offs in animal populations especially primates like humans can be ascribed to either badly polluted water or air.

    The cholera epidemic in Barbados of the1850’s is believed to have culled a significant slice of the population at the time, leading to the construction of reservoirs and associated transmission mains to bring ‘clean’ water to the city of Bridgetown and its surrounds.

    The Montefiore Fountain is there to remind you guys of your dirty past. Next time you pass there just remember that Barbados is playing a game of Russian roulette with its public sanitation responsibilities by compromising its ability to distribute potable water effectively and collect the foul smelling garbage from the streets on which an ever increasing rat population now feels at home.

    Don’t you think that the drought conditions being experienced in Bim would result in greater demands being placed on the aquifers with the dregs and sludge from past pollutants finding their way to the spout of high daily demand?

    You either are raising a very important point or the authorities have already ‘managed’ the alleged problem. Either way its a matter not for ole talk on BU but more direct action/response.

    In fact your other query about the bees etc is also an interesting one that an agricultural officer can respond to.

    @ the Honourable Blogmaster.

    This matter of “sudden deaths” is proving to be a very sensitive topic since on the one hand, it is a fact that we all going die but on the other hand it would seem that we are having too many people “cocking up and dying” in the open.

    “I copied this from an article that caught my eye yesterday

    “Forensic autopsies – those carried out in the case of murder or suspicious death – are far more detailed and involved than standard, non-criminal autopsies.

    Among other examinations, blood and organ samples are collected for toxicological testing, stomach contents are collected and analysed and fingernails are scraped and clipped.”

    Lest it be said that one is fear mongering here is the article

    http://www.bbc.com/news/science-environment-26324244

    Might one counter the following to the reasonable concerns given the “frequency of this anomaly?”

    Suppose we did have a Donald Harvey here. see http://www.nydailynews.com/news/crime/hospital-worker-mass-murder-article-1.2090795

    Suppose that we did have a person like Harvey on the loose there are 3 questions to be asked.

    One. Has there been any forensic autopsies conducted and what are the results?

    Two. I the results were “untoward” what would publicizing them do with our tourism based economy, especially at this Crop Over time?

    Three. Given the seeming non-relatedness of the victims, how easy would it be to trace the perpetrator(s)?
