Thirty patients receiving treatment in a top Baghdad heart clinic have died after being struck down with a mystery virus that has contaminated the establishment, [the Iraq newspaper Babel] reported Thu 22 Jun 2000.
"Twenty-five other patients are at the point of death" in the Saddam cardiology centre, said Babel. The Saddam cardiology centre is the most prestigious heart clinic in Iraq. The clinic's administration has decided to stop all surgical operations until it had the results of a medical inquest opened to determine the origin of the fatal virus, Babel said.
