常州学校污染事件:近500名学生身体异常
 
【新闻热点】
 
近日,常州外国语学校被曝出建在污染地块旁,近500名学生身体异常。 
 
自学校搬迁到新地址后,493名学生检出皮炎、血液指标异常等,个别查出淋巴癌、白血病等。经检测,该校区地下水、空气均检出污染物。学校附近正在开挖的地块上曾是3家化工厂,专家称校区受到的污染与化工厂地块上污染物吻合。
 
而这一事持续发酵。17日晚,环保部和江苏省政府召开专题会议,成立联合调查组。18日,教育部表示,国家督学将牵头赴当地进行专项督导。此外,还有环保组织欲对造成污染的化工厂发起公益诉讼。
 
不过常州官方当天回应称,早在今年3月下旬,学校已委托专业检测机构对学校内空气、土壤等进行检测,各指标均符合国家标准及相关要求。而另据媒体报道,常州新北区政府相关人士称,暂未发现央视报道中的有学生患白血病的情况。(新闻来源:新京报)

Pollution near Jiangsu high school sickens 493 students
 
Hundreds of students at a high school in East China's Jiangsu Province were sickened by alleged environmental pollution from nearby former chemical factories, media reported Sunday.
 
Since Changzhou Foreign Languages School (CFLS) relocated to its current site in September 2015, a total of 493 students at the school have developed abnormal blood parameters and diseases such as dermatitis, eczema and bronchitis, while some have even been diagnosed with leukemia and lymphoma, China Central Television (CCTV) reported.
 

 
Parents have attributed the illnesses to a construction site north of the school, where three chemical factories used to stand.
 
The level of pollutants detected in the groundwater and soil at the construction site were excessively above safety standards, with chlorobenzene levels as much as 100,000 times higher than the standard, according to the CCTV report.
 
One employee who had worked for 30 years in one of the three factories, Jiangsu Changlong Chemicals Co, was quoted as saying by CCTV that some employees would dispose of contaminated water directly outside the factory and often buried dangerous waste underground.(via Sina English)
