Thousands of villagers have sought treatment in hospital after toxic chemicals were dumped into a river in southern Malaysia this week.
Police arrested three people in connection to the illegal dumping of 20-40 tonnes of chemicals linked to rubber tyre recycling.
The government initially considered declaring a state of emergency due to the danger posed by the fumes, but now said that the situation is under control.
Doctors said victims of the fumes are suffering from nausea, shivering and difficulty breathing.
