  • [01] INFANT - HOSPITAL - DEATH

    A fortnight-old infant, born in a private clinic, died on Saturday in the intensive care unit for the newborn at Makarios Hospital, in Nicosia, where it had been admitted along with other ten infants after falling ill. «The fortnight-old infant died today at 00:35», Director of the Makarios Hospital Pediatric Clinic and Head of the Intensive Care Unit Andreas Hadjidemetriou told CNA.

    Two more infants are on respirators while last Tuesday another infant died at the same hospital. A total of ten infants are being treated in the unit, receiving treatment for pneumonia. Seven of them are now in a better condition.

    Laboratory analyses showed that all infants are suffering from Legionnaires` disease, also known as Legionellosis, an acute respiratory infection caused by bacteria. However, according to Hadjidemetriou, the final laboratory examinations will be announced next week.

    The infants being treated in the intensive care unit were born between December 17 and 22 at the private clinic Ippokration, the maternity unit of which will remain closed until the examinations are concluded.
