Suspicion of Food Poisoning Among Several Students in Nha Trang

Many elementary and middle school students in Vinh Truong ward, Nha Trang city experienced vomiting and stomach pain after eating breakfast and were taken to the emergency hospital. Khanh Hoa Provincial General Hospital received 20 students, with 17 students from Vinh Truong Primary School and 3 students from Tran Hung Dao Secondary School. Tam Tri Nha Trang General Hospital received 8 students. In addition, one child was treated at Phuc Sinh General Clinic.

On the same day, Nha Trang City People’s Committee reported that a total of 28 students from the two schools were hospitalized with symptoms like vomiting, difficulty breathing, and nausea after eating breakfast. Doctors suspect that the students may have food poisoning as they had consumed dishes from local restaurants near the school gate.

Unfortunately, a 5th grade female student from Vinh Truong Primary School passed away at Khanh Hoa Provincial General Hospital due to underlying heart disease. The Department of Health clarified that the cause of death was not related to food poisoning, even though the student had eaten sushi before experiencing symptoms.

The remaining patients are in stable condition and are under observation. Parents of affected students reported that their children had eaten food from restaurants near the school gate before falling ill. Authorities are investigating the food establishments suspected to have caused the food poisoning outbreak.

In a similar incident last month, 10 Nha Trang students experienced digestive issues from eating chicken rice near the school gate, and 369 people were poisoned by contaminated food from a local restaurant. The health sector in Khanh Hoa is working to ensure food safety and prevent further incidents.
