The University of Port Harcourt teaching hospital has denied rumours that have been making the rounds on social media that nineteen babies died at the special care baby unit as a result of power outage in the institution.

The chief medical director, Henry Ugboma says the rumours were unfounded and lies from the pits of hell, adding that the teaching hospital was an institution where the best medical standards were being practiced and maintained.

He also noted that health related issues were very sensitive matters that should not be toyed with and warned those peddling such negative rumours to stop playing politics with people’s lives.

Ugboma however advised media practitioners to always crosscheck their reports in order not to misinform the public especially in sensitive matters that concern health services delivery.
