Report sough on Mahamodera deaths

Health Minister Maithripala Sirisena told parliament today that he has sought a report on the infant deaths at the Mahamodera hospital.

Responding to a question raised by UNP MP Sajith Premadasa in parliament today the Health Minister said that the report on the deaths is expected by Monday.

He said that a Health Ministry team has already been sent to the hospital to investigate the deaths and until they submit the report he is unable to make any further comments.

At least 10 infants had died at the hospital over the past couple of weeks.
