The coroner’s most populous County, Ohio reports 10 deaths from drug overdoses in just 26 hours.
In a statement posted to Facebook, the Franklin County coroner, Dr. Anahi Ortiz (Anahi Ortiz) says that the number of deaths from opioids – unusually high for a region in such a short period of time.
Dr. Ortiz encourages everyone to have naloxone – a drug overdose, which immediately removes the effects of fentanyl and other potent synthetic opioids. These drugs are often mixed with cocaine and methamphetamine, as well as with tablets bought on the black market – this leads to death.
Fentanyl is approximately 50 times more powerful than heroin and can be purchased online.
