    DGHS says sorry as it finds the children weren't vaccinated, suffered from malnutrition, didn't get proper treatment

    ... "They [the deceased children] were suffering from malnutrition too, which caused the disease to take a serious turn," he said at the conference held at the Institute of Epidemiology, Disease Control and Research (IEDCR).
    The deaths could have been prevented if the children were given proper treatment, he said, apologising for the sad and irreversible event.

    Meanwhile, one more child, from Sonachori union, was hospitalised yesterday, reports our correspondent from Chittagong.
    With the latest one, the number of hospitalised children having similar symptoms rose to 88.
    Prof Pranab Kumar Chowdhury, head of the CMCH paediatrics department, said the children were getting well as they were responding to the treatment.
    "Symptoms show that most of them are suffering from measles.... As the children were not vaccinated and they did not even take vitamin A capsule, their physical immunity was very poor.?...
