Elabha Meni, the acting public relations officer, made this claim in a statement released on Saturday in Port Harcourt.

Meni, who acknowledged that there had been a power outage, was responding to social media rumors that 14 infants had died recently at the hospital.

However, he said that the report was meant to harm the institution’s reputation as a center of excellence.

The statement reads, “The University of Port-Harcourt Teaching Hospital is an institution, where the world’s best medical standards are practiced and maintained. Which also has helped make the institution one of the best medical centers in the South-South and Nigeria at large.

“However, it is quite saddening that certain persons try to tarnish the image of the hospital by spreading false messages and information that are inaccurate.

“Our attention has been drawn to a story of the 14 to 19 babies dying in the hospital, this is not correct. We did not record any infant mortality in our SCBU (inborn and outborn) as a result of our electrical power outage, due to the faulty transformer, during which the standby generator serviced the hospital for the period, with all emergency areas fully powered.

“Surgeries were never canceled; neither were our services disrupted.
