Fuad Khan says sewage in beaches, a major concern

Former Health Minister Dr. Fuad Khan says the public should be concerned about recent disclosures made about sewage at the nation’s beaches. The Institute of Marine Affairs recently revealed that poor coastal development is largely responsible for concerning levels of sewage, particularly on the northwest coast.

Today, Dr. Fuad Khan who serves as Member of parliament for San Juan/ Barataria told News Power Now that bathers are susceptible to a number of health conditions, if they choose to bathe at affected beaches.

The former Health Minister said persons who may be of the view that they have not been affected by the situation to date, should be mindful that some common illnesses experienced, could have been transmitted to them, simply by ingesting some of the affected water.
