I think as tourists that no matter where in the World that we visit whereby the standards of living are generally of a lesser quality, we have to be extremely careful. It’s certainly pause for thought as to how these deaths are occurring and any patterns that may become evident... OT but I visited an area of Thailand with my husband in 1998 which was on the outskirts but still a touristy destination and we went to a bar at 7pn and ordered a bottled beer each so that we could have some control over the safety of our drinks. I hadn’t even had half of the bottle when I became semi unconscious and fell off my bar stool. I flaked out and Was woke up at 330pm the following day, some 20.5 hours later!!! I was then told that my husband had to get some other English speaking tourists to assist in carrying me back to our hotel because although only 5 ft 5 inches tall and 119lbs, I was apparently a total ‘dead unmovable weight ‘ and the local Thai Police arrived, 4 of them, and proceeded to have a ‘tug of war’ with my husband and assisting public, with my unconscious body! They were trying to take me and my husband,fearing what may happen to me whilst unconscious and in their presence , fought desperately hard to stop them and thankfully was successful. I do not and did not at the time, recall anything of this and my only memory was of being at the bar for approximately 30 minutes and then waking up over 20 hours later with no memory whatsoever of the previous evening events. A truly terrifying scenario.
