11 Newborn Babies Die at Kenyatta Hospital

Sources at the hospital say the newborn babies died due to Klebsiella and other factors, compounded by the poor state of the ward. A spot-check at the facility has revealed that up to three children share a cot, putting them at risk of infecting each other.
