Dr. Usha Sadasivam, dean of government Villupuram medical hospital, said, "Four pre-term babies lost their lives due to health complications. It is wrong to say eight babies died. The babies were under-weight. The mothers' ages were in the range of 18-27 and were largely under-nourished. As a preventive measure, the expecting mothers are advised to consult doctors well in advance on having a proper nutritious diet."

Dr. Sadasivam refuted the possibilities of any infections or negligence in treatment.
