Two children died yesterday after taking expired medicines

Two children died yesterday in Suweidan Jazeerah town, controlled by the SDF, after taking expired medicines.

A D24 correspondent said that the children ‘Abdullah and Rim Mahmoud Al-Bikr’, both below the age of five year, passed away yesterday after taking an expired fever medicine.

Their parents bought the medicines from a pharmacy in the aforesaid town.

It should be pointed out that many children have died due to expired medicines in SDF-held areas of Deir Ezzor, which is caused by the absence of any health surveillance measures.

Deir Ezzor Civil Council-linked health committee had previously distributed expired medicines to the pharmacies and health centers in the Deir Ezor countryside.
