- Scottish Government Orders Investigation Into Mysterious Spike Of New Born Baby Deaths
For the second time in six months death records for new born babies have hit a worrying level in Scotland.
The Scottish Government have ordered an investigation into why newborn deaths were higher than expected in both September 2021 and March 2022. Healthcare Improvement Scotland has been commissioned by the Scottish Government to investigate the high incidence of newborn mortality in the country.
According to a news release “The review will cover all reported deaths across Scotland between 1 April 2021 and 31 March 2022 to find out if there is anything that may have contributed to the increase. Anything identified will feed into recommendations and actions to improve the quality of care for mother and babies”
The Gateway Pundit reports: Deaths among infants younger than four weeks old increased to at least 18 in March (4.6 per 1,000 births) and as many as 21 in September (2021) (4.9 per 1,000 births), according to Scottish Daily Express.
