Muhammad Al-Hassan, the father of the seven-year-old girl, said: “My daughter Fatima died of cold in Al-Rahman Hospital. Touching her dead body made it feel like snow. It is not up to us to do anything.
Dr. Fadi Halq said that when Fatima was brought to the hospital, her color had turned blue while blood was also flowing from her nose and mouth. Unfortunately, she died due to a cold.
A two-month-old girl named Amina also died of a cold. The doctors of Rehman Hospital said that the color of this little girl had also turned blue.
