Vizag saw a gas leak on morning of May7, 2020 at LG Polymers Industry.

11 people have died and thousands reported sick after the leak of Styrene gas from the chemical plants in Vishakhapatnam, Andhra Pradesh.

They have been admitted to government hospital and King George Hospital in Gopalapatnam.

This takes you back to the Bhopal Gas Tragedy of 1984. Methyl isocyanate (MIC) was leaked from the pesticide plant resulting in a long-term tragedy. The side-effects from that gas leak are still borne by people, who were exposed to it and who continued to live in the area affected.

With the pandemic, COVID-19, on an all time high, this came as another blow for India on a whole. Doctors are doing their best to fight this disaster with the help of NDRF teams. It was reported that 2,000 residents have been affected by the leakage and around 5,000 people have been evacuated to safer places.
