11 fentanyl overdoses reported within 48 hours in Guelph area, public health unit says

Guelph’s public health unit is urging drug users to take extra precaution as there have been 11 overdoses reported within 48 hours.

The spike is being blamed on a potent batch of fentanyl that is either rainbow-coloured or dark purple, Wellington-Dufferin-Guelph Public Health said in a tweet on Monday.

“Reports also indicate certain overdoses have required 3-4 doses of naloxone to reverse,” the tweet said.

Guelph police said they were also seeing a spike in suspected fentanyl overdoses.
