The Casiaos, a group of nine living on the shores of Pangan-an, an islet-barangay found four kilometers south of Olango Island, endure every day by collecting fish, for example, crabs and fishes from the ocean.

What's more, as a rule, they catch and cook pufferfish, privately known as tikong (additionally called butete or burereng) as their feast.

Pufferfish is a harmful sort of fish usually found in tropical oceans. In any case, in the hands of a gifted cook who realizes how to remove its venomous sacs without defiling the carnal segments of this fish the span of a kid's thumb, it is additionally a delicacy among Cebuanos.

The Casiaos more likely than not eaten inun-unan nga burereng (pufferfish stewed in vinegar) various occasions. In any case, on Tuesday, March 26, everything except one endured nourishment harming in the wake of expending pufferfish stew. It additionally killed the Casiao's five-year-old child.

Maeanwhile, the Casiaos are currently approaching assistance from concerned residents for the full recuperation of their five kids, ages 12 to two, who are presently bound in VSMMC for treatment.

What was the deal?

In light of information assembled by going to doctors of VSMMC, the Casiaos were conceded at the Santa Rosa District Hospital, situated in Barangay Santa Rosa in Olango Island, on Tuesday evening, March 26.

The family griped of spewing, discombobulation, and stomach torment – manifestations of nourishment harming – in the wake of devouring pufferfish they reaped from the oceans around Barangay Pangan-an.

Bongon said individuals who endure nourishment harming because of utilization of pufferfish will begin appearing, for example, wooziness and stomach torment around 30 to 45 minutes after ingestion.

He said the instance of the Casiaos was unique.

"In ordinary pufferfish harming, the manifestations begin to show around 30 to 45 minutes since ingestion. Despite the fact that the side effects (of common pufferfish harming) are the equivalent, however this current family's case is unique," said Bongon.

"They said they had the pufferfish for breakfast, around 6 a.m. on Monday (March 26) yet they began enduring side effects of sustenance harming around six to seven hours after the fact, at 1 p.m.," he included.

Bongon additionally said the nourishment harming could likewise be brought about by different factors, for example, the way that the Casiao family additionally ate little crabs, privately known as kasag, together with their pufferfish stew.

"Possibly (the kasag) they ate was not appropriately cooked. This is the reason we need to lead further tests and examination," he included.
