Brazil murder doctor probed over more deaths

A Brazilian doctor charged with murdering seven hospital patients is now being investigated in connection with hundreds more similar cases of suspicious deaths. A team led by health ministry investigator Mario Lobato is re-examining the 1,872 deaths that have happened over the past seven years in the intensive care unit led by 56-year-old Virginia Soares de Souza. On Sunday, Lobato said in an interview with Globo television that 20 of these deaths at the Evangelical hospital in the southern city of Curitiba are now deemed suspicious and 300 more are under review.
