Published on: 05/26/2022 – 03:46 Eleven newborns died this Wednesday in the fire in the neonatology department of the Tivaouane hospital in Senegal. A new tragedy that generates indignation and highlights the shortcomings of the public health system. Eleven newborn babies perished on Wednesday May 26 in a fire in a hospital in Tivaouane, in western Senegal, President Macky Sall announced on Twitter. I have just learned with pain and consternation of the death of 11 newborn babies in the fire that occurred in the neonatology department of the Mame Abdou Aziz Sy Dabakh hospital in Tivaouane.
To their mothers and their families, I express my deepest sympathy.— Macky Sall (@Macky_Sall) May 25, 2022 “I have just learned with pain and dismay of the deaths of 11 newborn babies in the fire that occurred at neonatology service of the public hospital of Tivaouane, indicated Mr. Sall. “To their mothers and their families, I express my deep compassion,” he added. “Three babies were saved,” said the mayor of Tivaouane, Demba Diop. The hospital had been inaugurated recently, according to the local press. The fire was caused by “a short circuit and the fire spread very quickly”, according to Demba Diop, also a member of the National Assembly and better known as Diop Sy. Another drama that occurred in another public hospital had already upset Senegal. In Louga (north), a pregnant woman died after having waited in vain in great suffering for a caesarean section. This death had sparked a wave of indignation on social networks against the shortcomings of the public health system. Following this tragedy, three midwives were sentenced on May 11 to six months in prison suspended for “non- assistance to person in danger” by the High Court of Louga. Three other midwives had been released. Four newborns died on April 25, 2021 in a fire in the Senegalese town of Linguère, in the north of the country. The mayor of Linguère, then Minister of the Interior, Aly Ngouille Ndiaye, had mentioned an electrical malfunction of an air conditioning unit in the maternity ward, where there were six babies.
