A man dies after eating shawarma in Kerala.
Media hyped this event. The reason is Sensationalism. Sensationalism as per Wikipedia is a bias in favor of the exceptional over the ordinary, giving the impression that rare events, such as airplane crashes, are more common than common events, such as automobile crashes.
You could see visuals of raids in TV , discussion in radio for a week happening over the issue.Altogether 11 hotels were ordered to be closed and 150 hotels served with notices seeking improvement in quality and standards. The raids covered 211 hotels on Tuesday and 60 hotels on Wednesday (till evening).
Look at what the authorities did ,"Shawarma banned for a week!"
The real reason for death was not conveyed properly to the public. The real reason of death is "botulism". It could be prevented by cooking it properly before eating it. The man who died took a parcel and the toxins content increased.
Since the media gave more attention to this news. There won't be no discussion on human beings being used as "guinea pigs" . See the following news
The Supreme Court has termed as “unfortunate” the alleged incidents of humans being treated as “guinea pigs” in ‘illegal’ clinical trials in the country.
Clinical trials are done to ensure that such vaccines, drugs and devices are safe and effective during their use. Two public interest litigations (PILs) alleged that these people, mainly poor and illiterate from the marginalised communities, were being made guinea pigs in ‘illegal and unethical’ clinical trials of vaccines and drugs made by some multinational corporations. It added that these incidents were happening in India due to poor implementation of laws. The apex court on Monday hauled up the Centre and the Madhya Pradesh Government for not filing their replies to these PILs according to its earlier directions by Monday, saying the authorities should have “some sense of responsibility.” The court then asked the Government and the Medical Council of India to file their replies within eight weeks.
