Doctors had declared soon after birth that the babies were stable, and were going to be taken for advanced medical attention in Lusaka, yet they were not able to endure their condition and died early Monday morning.
The hospital has still not informed about the official cause of death. “The hospital was monitoring the twins, trying to stabilise their condition… Unfortunately, they died this [Monday] morning,” Dr Joseph Musowoya, the hospital´s chief medical superintendent, said.
It was the woman´s first pregnancy.
