Haiti Health - It is NOT Clairin killing people, It's Methanol, Commerce Minister said

Haiti's commerce minister believes the deadly alcohol killing people in and around Port-au-Prince is METHANOL, not the 'Clairin Local'... Following the deaths of the latest victims in Petit-Gove, Ministre Jude Hervé Day says "the recent deaths are not related to clairin consumption."

KREYOL: Haiti Santé - Se PA KLEREN k ap touye moun nan lari a, se METHANOL... Revandè ki ap vann poison saa bay tafyatè yo se yon CRIME y ap komèt... Declaration Ministre Comerce Jude Herve Day... Kisa ou panse de sa???

Since the mid to late February news spread of a deadly moonshine (Clairin) out there killing people instantly. Victims of this potent solution go blind before dying within hours of consumption.

Local Clairin distillers came out on radio denying that it was the clairin itself causing the deaths. Some say re-sellers add METHANOL to the mix in an attempt to make give the clairin a stronger taste causing the deaths of unsuspecting consumers

Minister Hervé Day maintains that some vendors are selling a poisonous solution to the public and this is a criminal act.

What do you think about that?
