The editorial, “Mission to cut neonatal deaths” (Jan. 10), deserves special mention. It is not just timely but also emphasises the need to focus on the basic reasons behind neonatal deaths. Basics are something we always tend to ignore. Keralites are known for their progressive outlook and health awareness. It is high time every State in the country took adequate measures to mitigate neonatal deaths.
