Police in Regina say they have responded to 19 drug overdoses in the city within a five-day span.
They said officers attended 14 on the weekend alone – from the afternoon of Feb. 7 until Sunday – and administered Naloxone in three of those cases.
Superintendent Lorilee Davies said officers responded to another two overdoses on Monday night and three more on Tuesday morning.
She said investigators believe there’s a “bad batch” of fentanyl circulating in the city.
There have been no fatalities reported related to the overdoses.
Supt. Davies asked anyone who has information about the drug to come forward to police, so they can get the dangerous drug out of the city.
