Contaminated Spinal Nedles

About a year back mothers who had undergone Caesarian Sections started developing meningitis in several State hospitals of Sri Lanka.About ten of them died by the time the cause namely a fungus was discovered.Source of fungi was traced to the Spinal needles.
These needles have been purchased from a questionable source.Most of the mothers who died were poor.
No investigation was done.The resposibility was not fixed on any one.The culprits have got away with impunity.
How disgraceful? (Most of the health administrators in Sri Lanka are doctors.)
