Manama : Another Bahraini infant has died in a public hospital, the fifth case reported this year, prompting authorities to order an immediate probe into the incident.
Redha Qamar reportedly died while receiving treatment at Salmaniya Medical Complex (SMC) Accident and Emergency Department on Tuesday.
The one-year-old boy was earlier admitted to the hospital’s paediatric ward as his body temperature was not stable. According to reports, his condition deteriorated few days later and was referred to the Intensive Care Unit (ICU). He was announced dead later.
Minister of Health Faeqa Al Saleh has ordered an immediate probe into the child’s death.

“The Death and Complications Committee has been assigned to study the causes of the death and confirm if all the necessary medical procedures were
