Lessons at stand­still af­ter mass faint­ing case

The Phnom Penh Post - - NATIONAL -

LESSONS at Sam­pov Loun High School in Bat­tam­bang prov­ince are com­ing to a stand­still, fol­low­ing a de­ci­sion to close the school on Tues­day and Wed­nes­day by mem­bers of the school com­mit­tee and lo­cal author­ity. This fol­lows a case of mass faint­ing that saw over 40 stu­dents af­fected. Sam­pov Loun district po­lice chief, Pich Saren, said the stu­dents had dif­fi­culty breath­ing and felt fa­tigued since last Thurs­day. “[The stu­dents] got tired af­ter study­ing too much. They were not af­fected by any type of poi­son,” he said. Chork Sam Ol, the district hospi­tal di­rec­tor, echoed Saren’s re­mark, say­ing: “There is no se­ri­ous prob­lem. They did not have enough food, in ad­di­tion to over­study­ing.”
