Almost a week after a chemical spill in the Rio Cobre led to a massive fish kill, residents of nearby communities are still reeling from the effects.

One of these communities is Kent Village where residents have been protesting about the impacts of the fish kill on the community.

Some of the residents say fishermen are unable to ply their trade, residents have to lock themselves inside due to the odour from the chemicals and businesses have to be closed. In cialis order addition thousands of residents have no water.

On Sunday Minister without Portfolio in the Ministry of Economic Growth and Job Creation Matthew Samuda toured the area and highlighted that steps will be taken to aid residents and prevent a recurrence of the incident.

However, despite those actions by the government residents say they are suffering and their daily activities have been significantly inconvenienced.

One resident said she has had to bring her daughter to the hospital due to the odour affecting the community.
