Seven infants have reportedly died in Malda Medical College and Hospital in the past 24 hours.
Hospital authorities claimed all the seven infants were of “low birth weight” and were referred to Malda hospital from different hospitals in a critical state.
“The infants who have died were of low birth weight. They were referred to the hospital from other heath centres. Most of them died of choking and abnormal breathing,” said hospital’s deputy superintendent Jyotish Chandra Das. He added the deaths were not due to “medical negligence”. The hospital authorities said most of these cases were of non-institutional delivery.
