“But if it is serious, they will bring them here to the hospital, where it will be properly handled so that tetanus or any other infection does not affect them’’ he said.

The chairman also reiterated the pledge he made at a stakeholders meeting to donate another incubator to Amuwo/Odofin Maternal and Child Centre.
