An investigation into the death of a hospitalized 10-year-old cancer patient from an infection linked to pigeon droppings could end up in criminal proceedings, according to an article on The Scottish Sun website.
The boy was battling cancer at the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital in Glasgow in December 2018.
In the same year, 21 other children with cancer were infected with infections from 12 separate types of fungi and bacteria at the hospital. A case has emerged, with a child cancer patient contracting a bacterial infection linked to the hospital's water system.
The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) and NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde are investigating the source of the infections. HSE staff probing the Cryptococcus infection plan to question more than 20 employees as part of a criminal probe into the incident.See the latest posts on our homepage
