"The seven people, after eating pufferfish, had severe symptoms that required emergency medical treatment, and after receiving intensive care from a team of our doctors, currently, the patients are recovering," the statement said.

The symptoms that occur 20 minutes to two hours after eating these poisonous pufferfish include numbness, tingling around the mouth and in the limbs, headache, dizziness, salivation, nausea, vomiting and diarrhea, the statement said.

The symptoms may progress to paralysis, loss of consciousness, and respiratory failure that can lead to death, it added.
