Neo-Natal Intensive Care Ordered to Shut Down in Phillipines
An order to shut down the neo-natal intensive care unit of the Rizal Medical Center in the province of Rizal with immediate effect was passed by the Philippine Health Secretary Francisco Duque III following reports of the death of seven new born babies.

The unfortunate deaths of all the 7 babies have been certified by the hospital to have occurred due to uncontrolled bacterial infection in blood or "neo-natal sepsis". .

An inspection control committee was constituted by the health department to conduct an inquiry into the circumstances that led to these deaths. The health secretary also has ordered the immediate decontamination of the intensive care unit. .
