New Delhi. In the case of the death of 66 children in The Gambia days before drinking cough syrup, the government appears to be backtracking on its statement. The Gambian government has yet to confirm that at least 66 children have died from kidney damage caused by Indian cough syrup. According to the Reuters news agency, a representative of the Gambia Medicines Control Agency gave this information. Let us tell you that a few days ago it was learned that 66 children had died in The Gambia after drinking cough syrup. It was later alleged that these children died after drinking Indian-made cough syrup. There was a lot of uproar in the country about this.

Indeed, the WHO had indicated in its warning that the deaths of children in The Gambia could be linked to Maiden Pharma’s cough syrup. According to information available on the company’s website, it has two manufacturing units in India at Kundli and Panipat in Haryana. It is also headquartered in Pitampura, the capital Delhi. The company described itself as a WHO-GMP and ISO 9001-2015 certified pharmaceutical company on the website.

Let us inform that according to the AP report of last month, the director of health in Gambia, Mustafa Bittaye, while confirming the cause of death of all the children, said that all these children died due to serious kidney problems . At the same time, according to sources, India has questioned Gambia’s control and auditing standards to allow this syrup in its country. According to Indian government sources, the post-mortem report of 66 deceased children shows that these children had E-coli and diarrhea, so why were they given cough syrup.
