According to a report given to the state's health minister, none of the deaths at the BC Roy hospital were due to the spread of infection.
Charges that the deaths were due to a lack of oxygen supplies in the hospital were strongly denied; the hospital stated that it has sufficient reserves for its nearly 600 children, and added that the deaths reflect normal mortality rates.
Tight security arrangements have been made around the complex to prevent any possible violence.
