Madagascar: ethyl coma substantially accelerated over the political crisis of 2009, according to an emergency doctor in Tananarive
A collateral consequence of the political crisis in Madagascar since 2009 is the increase in reported cases of ethyl coma and this, as a result of excessive absorption of alcohol to escape the current economic difficulties of the Big Island.

According to an emergency physician of the Joseph Ravoahangy Andrianavalona hospital of Tananarive, people having more and more difficulties to feed themselves find shelter in the bottle and get drunk with the backdrop of increasing poverty of the Malagasy population.

"Many people prefer alcohol without taking one gram of food today for lack of money. Yet this attitude causes alcoholic coma. Peak seems to have been reached last week, Independence Day, with sixteen comatose and deaths in a single day, June 26", concedes the emergency physician at the lexpressmada.com site.
 
3 comas ethyl on average (two men and one woman) are now recorded as a day in the hospital emergency in Tananarive.
