Mamata's West Bengal kills more infants; 6 children dead


Infant deaths in WB
Malda, Nov 10: The infant deaths in West Bengal continues unabated with 6 more infant deaths at the Malda district hospital. The disturbing trend has come to the focus when the state saw as many as 11 crib deaths at the famous B C Roy Children's Hospital last month alone in a rerun of the 18 crib deaths in June. 

Justifying the deaths, the hospital superintendent said that the reason for the deaths were lack of infrastructure and the infants were underweight at the time of admitting to hospital. He also ruled out any negligence by the doctors for the sorry state of affairs.

A probe has been ordered into the abnormal deaths of the infants. The family of the children have not lodged a formal complaint as yet. The babies were malnourished when admitted and had low birthweight causing a grave threat to life.
