E-mail Print PDF

Gaza2Aug2GAZA (PNIC):-The Palestinian health ministry said that a four-day-old baby on Thursday joined the convoy of victims who had died as a result of their need for vital medicines unavailable in Gaza hospitals.

According to a statement by the ministry, four-day-old Karam Abu Awwad, from Beit Lahia, died due to the absence of a special respiratory medicine called “Calfactant” that helps premature infants to breathe normally.

In this regard, the nursery department at al-Shifa Hospital in Gaza has appealed to the competent authorities to urgently provide Gaza hospitals with medicines needed for newborns, especially the Calfactant.

This type of medication is one of many vital medicines that became out of stock in Gaza.

The same hospital had already seen the death of five premature infants after failure to provide them with this drug.
