Eastern Health says Another overdose on Fentanyl

Eastern Health says that there has been yet another overdose on the weekend.

The Health Authority says that there was another potentially related to the overdoses over the last several weeks.

This brings the total to 17. Of those 17 two have died.

Fentanyl is a powerful synthetic opioid analgesic that is similar to morphine but is 50 to 100 times more potent. Just two tiny grains are enough to kill an adult.
