Cough Syrup Causing Deaths in Lahore

Cough Syrup Causing Deaths in Lahore

A recent report has uncovered that a cough syrup, which people usually take to cure their cough, has unexpectedly claimed 13 lives in Lahore, Pakistan, in two days. The syrup was consumed by 20 drug addicts; the rest are also in critical condition.

It has been found that Saturday evening, the locally-manufactured cough syrup was drunk by the addicts and only a few minutes following the same, they fell ill. Five people died there and then, as per the report, while the rest were taken immediately to Mayo hospital run by the state.

It was the next day i. e. Sunday that eight other victims died. However, others are still fighting. It has been told by the doctors that the reason was contamination of the cough syrup. The same has only caused the drug addicts' failure of internal body organs.

The syrup is available at the city medical stores just for 40 Rupees, which is concerning experts that more people could be victimized. It is therefore that Shahbaz Sharif, Punjab Chief Minister, has asked the police to cease the syrup manufacturing company as well as the medical stores providing the same.

Meanwhile, the owners of all medical stores are under arrest and the syrup's samples are sent to laboratory for tests.
