2 cousins die on the same day by Scorpion bite

Two children of 5 and 6 years old have died from Scorpion bites around El-Jadida.

The boys played outside for their home in one of the areas of the rural municipality Sidi Bennour, when they were bitten by Scorpions.

According to the news source h24info were the two young nephews quickly to the emergency room of the Mohammed V hospital in El-Jadida transported before the poison could do its deadly operation. The intervention of the medical staff, however, was not achieved by the young age of the two children.

The families of the victims and some social associations were furious about the situation. They asked for explanations about the promises of the Ministry of health concerning the deployment of a plan to Scorpion bites in the various regions of the Kingdom. In addition, they deplore the lack of equipment necessary for the treatment of patients and the absence of skilled medical personnel.

The percentage of Scorpion bites goes up every year in Morocco. Marrakech and its surroundings has the highest percentage of Scorpion bites in Morocco: 8,000 cases per year.
