I see in last Thursday's paper that visitor numbers to the Cook Islands, especially from New Zealand, are declining. Also I read that the whale research centre needs money to rebuild.
I refer to an article in Cook Island News, Wednesday August 7, 2019 headed “Causing more harm than good” a most appropriate headline for other reasons than those aired in the article.
The Safety Data Sheet for Anolyte, from Radical Waters Ltd, South Africa, says it is an oxidising disinfectant and a weak acid. It says: “No hazards expected under normal conditions of use.”
Your paper's story on trans-shipment plans at Tongareva/Penrhyn Island (“Chinese company is told, go fish,” August 10) failed to mention why such a plan was opposed.
