Tear Gas and Petrol Bomb Countermeasure Programme.
Tear gas is widely being used, and while not directly lethal common effects after exposure include nasal and throat irritation, chest burning, ocular irritation and tearing, headache, chemical skin burns and irritation within 30 seconds of inhalation or skin contact. Vomiting and nausea can also be side effects. There are increasing reports of commercial office workers complaining being released to go home.
Is Tear Gas Lethal or Have Carcinogenic Effects?
As CS gas is airborne and a particulate, it can easily be brought into dwellings, cars, and other enclosed spaces anywhere air can go. Contaminated air is brought into buildings via the ventilation system, building leakage and can also be dispersed through secondary exposure from someone or items that have been exposed to CS gas and are later brought in to another location.
