Infants Death Worries Fiji

Infants Death Worries Fiji


Alarm is being raised in Fiji over the weekend after seven infant deaths have occurred so far this month alone.

Fijian Police on Saturday confirmed a one-month-old infant who was sick and died at the Colonial War Memorial (CWM) Hospital was the latest victim.

In addition, another one month and one week old baby taken to the CWM hospital by her relatives was pronounced dead on arrival. The post mortem result revealed the cause of death being viral pneumonia.

A similar report was lodged at the Sigatoka Police Station where another eight months old baby who was suffering from fever and having breathing difficulties was pronounced dead.

Police Spokesperson Ana Naisoro said this week alone four more infant deaths have been reported involving a ten, eight and four months old baby girls, as well as a one year old girl.

According to post mortem results, most of the deaths were as a result of viral pneumonia and a few cases of diarrhea contrary to an earlier assurance by the Ministry of Health.

The vaccine introduced in September was part of efforts to cut down the number of pneumonia cases in children under five and to reduce infant deaths.

Ministry of Health statistics show that each year over 550 cases of pneumonia are confirmed in children under five who have been admitted to hospital.


  1. black friday deals says:

    Of course! Those big pharmaceutical companies and their brain-washed doctors would have a fit if everyone used these effective alternative and proven treatments such as HP! Since there’s no big profits to be made from their use! This applies to cancer which has long been reputed to have cures found but these big pharma’s would go broke and lose absolute billions if these cures were applied…it’s a tragic and absolute disgusting disgrace that profits come before people’s lives!
    But there’s plenty of evidence “out there” if folk care to look and investigate that more and more people are “waking up” to the deceptions practised by these companies and also, unfortunately, by both the Cancer Societies and the brain-washed medicos!
    So, everyone, use hydrogen pyroxide instead of the brand named mouth washes use HP for an excellent ear-cleaning solution! It’s been used since Grandma’s day without any side effects!!

  2. Doug, don’t you think Ferrell’s SO/BB ratio is largely a product of his times? Ferrell’s 0.95 career mark is actually a little better than the AL average during 1929-38, his 10 full years. Both his SO/9 and his BB/9 are just a little better than the AL marks for that period.

  3. Shields has got to be chomping at the bit for this one…a chance to go to Hollywood with Magic johnson and the big boys,

  4. Thanks , I’ve just been looking for info about this subject for ages and yours is the best I’ve came upon till now. However, what in regards to the bottom line? Are you positive about the supply?|What i do not realize is in truth how you’re no longer actually much more neatly-favored than you might be right now. You’re very intelligent.
