El Mojón outpatients departments closed because of fumes which affected breathing

El Mojón outpatients departments have been closed today after the appearance just before 9am of a smell, described as “unbearable”, which caused throat irritation and difficulties in breathing for staff and patients alike. Authorities say that it appears to be a solvent, and the Canarian health department, Sanidad, has confirmed that the hospital has been completely evacuated, and all activity there has been suspended. The cause of the smell is being investigated.

Unlike so many journalists writing about the resorts, Pamela has not only actually been to Tenerife, she lived on the island for 16 years, for the majority of that time in a rural valley immersed in the local culture in a way that few outsiders have been privileged to do and gaining a wealth of knowledge about the island, its people, their customs, fiestas and celebrations that she is now able to share via this site. Fluent in Spanish, she also translated and reported for the various English-language newspapers.
