These 4 cough syrups kept in the house should be removed immediately, WHO issued an alert, the matter is related to the death of 66 children

The World Health Organization (WHO) has issued an alert regarding 4 ‘Cough and Cold’ syrups made by Maiden Pharmaceuticals of India. The WHO has linked these cough syrups to the deaths of 66 children in the African country of Gambia. In a medical product alert, the WHO has said that laboratory analysis of samples of these four syrups confirms that all cough syrups contain unacceptable amounts of diethylene glycol and ethylene glycol. The WHO believes that these drugs are potentially linked to serious kidney injuries and 66 children’s deaths.

The government of The Gambia last week reported a sudden increase in acute kidney injuries. Other symptoms are said to include abdominal pain, vomiting, diarrhea, inability to urinate, headache, altered mental status and acute kidney injury, which can lead to death.

WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said in a press conference on Wednesday that these contaminated products have so far only been detected in The Gambia. They can also be distributed to other countries. He said that WHO advises all countries to collect information about these products and not to use them.

The Gambia’s Ministry of Health issued an advisory on 9 September regarding ‘Syrup Paracetamol’. The advisory was issued after the death of 28 children up to the age of 4 years due to acute renal failure in 5 months. The investigation in the case was started on July 19. No details have been given about when the children died. The WHO said that information received from India indicated that the manufacturer had supplied contaminated drugs to The Gambia. Meanwhile, the government has also started an investigation into 4 cough syrups made by the pharmaceutical company. According to media reports, Health Ministry sources have said that the WHO had warned the Drug Controller General of India on September 29 about the cough syrup.

Alert issued on these syrups

WHO has issued an alert for gin syrup. They include ‘Promethazine Oral Solution’, ‘Kofexmalin Baby Cough Syrup’, ‘Makoff Baby Cough Syrup’ and ‘Magrip N Cold Syrup’. Are included.
