Following a WHO alert about India-made cough syrup in The Gambia, Modi government requests a report

India has launched an investigation into the World Health Organization’s claims that ‘contaminated’ cold and cough syrups caused 66 deaths in The Gambia.

The WHO issued a medical product alert on Wednesday regarding four cough and cold syrups manufactured by Maiden Pharmaceuticals in India.

It went on to say that the syrups made in India could cause acute kidney injuries in the West African country.

According to the reports, the Indian government has requested that the WHO share its report linking the deaths to cough syrup.
