New “Chemical Bronchitis” Is Spreading In Ohio 

( According to reports, due to a railway disaster earlier this month that released harmful chemicals into the environment, residents of the Ohio town of East Palestine are reporting odd symptoms, one of which has been dubbed “chemical bronchitis” by a member of the medical community. 

According to a local report, local healthcare personnel report an increase in the number of persons in the East Palestine region claiming they don’t feel well. 

Employees at QUICKmed Urgent Care informed the newspaper that patients report identical symptoms, such as a burning sensation when breathing, rash, and an overall sense of weakness in their bodies. 

Several people who live in East Palestine have claimed they feel better when they leave the city for a while but begin to feel worse once they return home. 

QUICKmed’s Deb Weese explained that the stinging or burning sensation experienced while inhaling might be a manifestation of “chemical bronchitis.”  She advised patients to keep a record of all of their symptoms. 

According to the Ohio Dept of Natural Resources, the railway crash caused the deaths of more than 40,000 fish and other aquatic species.  

Reports show cleanup teams had to resort to setting fire to five railway carriages to eliminate hazardous substances in a contained area. This resulted in the production of a threatening plume of dense smoke.  

Pictures of the controlled explosion were shared on social media, which caused widespread alarm throughout the country. 

Even though it has been shown that it is now secure for inhabitants of East Palestine who were forced to leave to return home and even consume available water, many people are still quite apprehensive about the situation. 

Reports show Sherrod Brown and J.D. Vance, representing the state of Ohio in the United States Senate, have issued a joint statement on the subject of lengthy health monitoring for inhabitants of East Palestine.

They have sent a letter to the heads of the EPA and the CDC, pleading to make it possible for those whose health was compromised to have medical screenings as a starting point.
