Health Minister Announces Checks In Maternity Hospitals Nationwide

“I have signed the order through which checks will be performed in maternities all around the country. I signed the order, they will probably begin on January 15,” the minister said in a press conference on Tuesday.

The decision follows a major infection crisis at a Bucharest maternity towards the end of last year, as 45 newborns birthed at the clinic were found bearing the staphylococcus bacteria within a two-month period.

Later medical tests performed on the maternity’s staff found that 27 of them were carriers of the bacteria.
