YEKATERINBURG, November 17 (Itar-Tass) —— The Nizhny Tagil investigative department opened a criminal case over the death of a three-year-old child at the city infectious disease hospital. The criminal case was instituted for a detailed investigation, the press service of the Sverdlovsk regional branch of the Investigative Committee told Itar-Tass.
“Under the criminal case a complex expertise is about to be scheduled that will be based on the available documents in order to find the time and reasons for child’s death and will investigate whether the medical aid to the little boy was correct and timely.

A three-year-old boy died, while he was being moved to various hospitals overnight to November 2 in Nizhny Tagil.
