It was reported earlier they had taken the Thai medicinal drink “Ya Dong” that was laced with extract of toad.

The authorities confirmed that four of the dozen admitted had been in a serious condition. Three have now been allowed home. 

One died. 

The public health department investigation pointed the cause of the problem to the ingestion of methanol and cyanide. 

This caused heart and kidney problems. Patients also were treated for high acid in the blood and mineral fluctuations. 

Sophon Cable TV reported that regulation of Ya Dong shops in the province and elsewhere falls under the jurisdiction of the excise department but that the public health department were warning the public to be careful what they ingest.
