kurnool-hospitalKurnool: Health Ravinder Reddy who shrugged his shoulders and blamed God for the death of 12 infants that occurred within 48 hours  at Kurnool Government hospital took a complete 360 turn and agreed that there was marginal human error and laxity. The callous minister unwilling to take the blame  had earlier given a clean chit to the hospital and blamed fate and God.

The government had sent a team lead by Director of Medical Education, Sampath Kumar to inquire into the cause of the death. After primary inquiry, investigation team established that there was no negligence on the part of the doctor and the hospital staff.

In July of the 187 infants admitted to the Kurnool hospital, 44 died. In August, 201 infants were admitted, of which 61 died, according to official data.
