WHO issues a warning against the use of cough syrups after Uzbek deaths
The World Health Organization has issued a warning against the use of cough syrups after a number of deaths in Uzbekistan. The syrups, which are widely available over the counter, contain codeine and other potentially harmful substances. In Uzbekistan, the syrups are often taken in large quantities and mixed with alcohol, which can lead to fatal overdoses.
The World Health Organization has issued a warning against giving two cough syrups made in India to young patients after they were implicated in the deaths of 19 kids there last month. The WHO defined “substandard medical items” as “products that fail to meet quality norms or specifications and are consequently out of specification.” The two products in question were both produced by Noida-based Marion Biotech.
AMBRONOL and DOK-1 Max were named as the “substandard medical items” in a “medical product alert” released on Wednesday. WHO added, “Both products’ purported maker is Marion Biotech Pvt Ltd. Manufacturers have not yet given WHO assurances about the products’ quality and safety.”
