    A Brazilian doctor charged with killing seven patients to free up hospital beds may be responsible for up to 300 deaths, according to investigators.

    Prosecutors claim that Dr. Virginia Soares de Souza, a 56-year-old who worked at the Evangelical Hospital in Curitiba, killed patients through asphyxia by giving them muscle relaxing drugs before reducing their oxygen supply, Reuters reports.

    Investigators are analyzing 1,700 medical records of patients who died at the hospital for links to de Souza. Three hundred cases are being probed, a Brazil Health Ministry official told Globo TV.

    De Souza has been charged with seven counts of murder, while three other doctors, three nurses and a physiotherapist where also hit with murder charges, Reuters reports.

    De Souza was arrested last month but was released last week on bail pending the results of the investigation.

    Her lawyer said prosecutors are misunderstanding how an intensive care unit operates.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
