Baibi Town government staff said on the 24th that according to preliminary understanding, these people were poisoned by carbon monoxide. Relevant departments are handling the follow-up.

Carbon monoxide is an “invisible killer”. It is a colorless, odorless and tasteless inorganic compound gas. People often become unconscious once inhaled and poisoned. Mild symptoms of poisoning include headache, dizziness, nausea, vomiting, palpitations, dizziness, weakness of limbs and fatigue. If severe, breathing may be accelerated, myocardial hypoxia or infarction, arrhythmia, difficulty breathing, or even death.
