Minister of Health, Terrence Deyalsingh, is assuring the public that conditions at the Neo-natal Intensive Care Unit at the San Fernando General Hospital are not unsanitary.

Minister Deyalsingh told the parliament that the bacterial problem at the medical facility is as a result of babies being born with a bacterial infection and the fact that cots at the nursery are too close to each other allowing for the spread of bacteria from one baby to another.

He said this problem has been ongoing for the past decade and steps have been taken to address the issue.
