Alert! WHO warns against taking 4 cough syrups from India

    The World Health Organisation (WHO) has warned against taking four cough syrups made from India.

    BBC reported that the drugs manufactured by an Indian company, Maiden Pharmaceuticals, could be linked to the deaths of 66 children in The Gambia.

    The International Health Agency said the company failed to provide guarantees about the safety of patients who might have taken it.

    WHO said; 

    ‘’The syrups have been potentially linked with acute kidney injuries and 66 deaths among children”

    Maiden Pharmaceuticals is yet to react to the development.
