The President of the National Commission for the Investigation of Newborn Deaths at the Maternity and Neonatology Center in Tunis, Professor Mohamed Douagi presented, during a press briefing organized today at the headquarters of the Ministry of Health, the conclusions of the national commission for the investigation of newborn deaths at the maternity and neonatology center in Tunis.
The report concluded that the deaths of the neonates were caused by a nosocomial infection that occurred during the preparation of the parenteral product in the clean room. But the origin of this drama is “multifactorial”, he insisted on explaining. A total of 14 cases of death have been recorded. This is the final assessment of this tragedy. As a reminder, a judicial investigation into this case is still ongoing.
