At the early morning of June 11, some people started having stomachache and diarrhoea. After the treatment at home failed, they were taken to Dong Hung General Hospital.

After that more and more people who attended the party were hospitalised with the same symptoms.

The Phu Chau medical station reported that up to 50 people suffered from poisoning after attending the party with 31 hospitalised. All of these 50 people ate wild boar blood soup.

The provincial Department of Food Safety carried out a test which showed that it was the wild boar blood soup that caused the poisoning.

Associate. Prof. Dr. Nguyen Duy Thinh from Hanoi University of Technology’s Institute of Food Industry said that many people often think pig blood soup is good for health, but in fact, this dish has many latent risks.
