Initially the reporters asked Mr.Anek Wetchapan-director of Sattahip water works- about the issue that the tap water in Sattahip was polluted and had stunk for months and there was a lot of dead fish in the reservoir. Mr.Anek revealed that there was dead fish in reservoir but it might be due to the lack of oxygen in the water. Also he insisted that the tap water was clean. In addition they had inspected KO ice plant in Sattahip but they don’t use tap water to produce the ice.

 

Mrs.Angkana Saengpetch a 47 year old KO ice plant owner revealed that the public health officers had inspected the ice plant because they expected the cause of outbreak was dirty ice. The officers took samples of the water which is used to produce ice to test it in a lab in order to find out the cause of the infection. While Mrs Angkana insisted that her ice was not the cause of plague.
