Dozens of Panamanians Gravely Ill from Toxic Substance from China

ug Administration urged consumers to stay away from Chinese-made toothpaste after finding levels as high as four percent of DEG in the imported products.

Panama's government has budgeted six million dollars to indemnify victims of the toxic substance. But Herrera says some of the surviving victims are in dire need of more aid. "It's a terrible tragedy that has changed the lives of hundreds of families and left irreparable damages and deep scars on the survivors," she said, citing the case of Juan Chan Lee, who had to stop working and has to undergo dialysis five times a day. "He has no money to pay for it and considers he'd be better off dead." Herrera wants Health Minister Camilo Alleyne to be removed from office so he can be investigated in the case. "But it's tough to demand justice and rights when your family is dying."
