Kes Pasir Gudang kemungkinan besar adalah histeria besar-besaran – Datuk Dr Looi

Pasir Gudang, 3 Julai: Kes pencemaran toksik di Pasir Gudang, Johor kemungkinan besarnya adalah kes histeria secara besar-besaran kerana tiada yang terkesan kecuali murid sekolah perempuan, dakwa Datuk Dr Looi Hoong Wah.

Beliau yang juga merupakan seorang fellow di Akademi Perubatan Malaysia berkata histeria besar-besaran di kalangan murid perempuan adalah perkara biasa dan boleh menjadi  lebih sukar dengan hyperventilasi,  tangisan, sawan dan bahkan kehilangan kesedaran.

“Fenomena ini lebih biasa di persekitaran yang terkurung dan atmosfera yang menekan yang selalu dihadapi oleh kanak-kanak sekolah. Ia tidak mengancam nyawa, kecuali jika sawan berlaku kerana ia akan menyebabkan saluran pernafasan tersumbat” – Datuk Dr Looi Hoong Wah.

Beliau berkata demikian semalam dalam satu surat yang disiarkan di akhbar NSTP.

Pada perkembangan berlainan, Profesor Kejuruteraan Kimia, Jabatan Kejuruteraan Kimia, Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia (UKM), Prof Datuk Ir Dr Wan Ramli Wan Daud, berkata kerajaan menerusi Jabatan Alam Sekitar (JAS) dan Jabatan Keselamatan dan Kesihatan Pekerjaan (JKKP) perlu mengeluarkan arahan menghentikan sementara operasi semua kilang dan loji kimia, lapor Berita Harian.

Beliau yang juga bekas Perunding Penilaian Risiko Kuantitatif (QRA) untuk Industri Minyak, Gas dan Petrokimia berkata ia adalah satu-satunya cara untuk menghentikan kejadian insiden keracunan gas daripada berulang.

“Ini adalah satu-satunya cara untuk menghentikan kejadian keracunan gas di Pasir Gudang daripada terus berulang. JAS dan JKKP perlu memeriksa rekod pembuangan bahan kimia di setiap kilang untuk menentukan dalang yang bertanggungjawab terhadap insiden terbabit,” – Prof Datuk Ir Dr Wan Ramli Wan Daud

Gelombang kedua pencemaran udara toksik di Pasir Gudang telah masuk hampir dua minggu dan punca kejadian tersebut masih belum dapat dikenal pasti kerajaan.

  1. ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ After having served for more than 10 years as the personal physician to the Pahang Royal Family and the then Agong of Malaysia, and having lived in the Kampong area for more than 40 years, and having practically all my nearest and dearest friends as Malay folks,
    .
    it is inconceivable that I was trying to belittle the Bumiputra community by saying that
    .
    the latest outbreak of so-called gas poisoning in June 2019 can be tentatively diagnosed as a possible case of mass hysteria as it fulfils all the medical criteria for the diagnosis.
    .
    What I was trying to do is to educate the Malaysian population on the subject of mass hysteria so that this malady is not being stigmatise and swept under the carpet…..and to stop the suggestion to call in foreign experts which would cause the country millions of ringgit in foreign exchange.
    .
    MAS HYSTERIA IS A VERY COMMON CONDITION IN ALL COUNTRIES AND HAS BEEN DIAGNOSED FREQUENTLY IN ALL COUNTRIES WITHOUT CAUSING ANY DISTRESS OR SHAME AND IS IN NO WAY A PSYCHIATRIC CONDITION i.e. it is not a form of madness but just a temporary disturbance of the conscious state and psychological state of a person.
    .
    It is just like going into a hypnotic trance and it can affect even the most intelligent people of those in the highest society.
    .
    I find that mass hysteria can occur in any country and any race and any religion and I find that the effects of this phenomenon can be very distressing and perplexing to even the doctors and nurses who attend to these patients.
    .
    As such I am not surprised to that the general public will be very upset and perplexed by this malady.
    .
    We must remember that although no organic cause can be found, the distressing symptoms and signs are real and they do cause a lot of pain and suffering to the patients and their relatives.
    .
    I HAVE TO KEEP ON EMPHASIZING THAT THESE CHILDREN ARE NOT FAKING THEIR SYMPTOMS AND SIGNS BUT THEY ARE REAL AND ARE JUST AS DISTRESSING AND PAINFFUL AS THE REAL ORGANIC SYMPTOMS.
    .
    That’s why all these patients must be adequately and correctly treated with sympathy and empathy, best by qualified psychologist and not just ignored.

    Also note that over the last 7 years or so, I have spent a lot of my time and own money to prevent anti-Lynas jokers from closing down the Lynas Rare Plant which provide the jobs to
    .
    about 4,000 MAINLY KAMPONG BUMIPUTRAS so that they can feed their families and children and I will continue to fight for my Bumiputra friends so that their rice bowls are not smashed.
