Di­ar­rhea

Pakistan Observer - - OPINION -

TALIB BADAL

Di­ar­rhea a fa­tal dis­ease, is on rise rapidly in Tur­bat. A large num­ber of the pa­tients of di­ar­rhea are un­der treat­ment in dif­fer­ent hospi­tals and are un­der ob­ser­va­tion. Pol­luted and in­hy­genic drink­ing wa­ter and use of hot wa­ter mel­ons are the main causes be­hind its rapid spread of this fa­tal ail­ment.

Sim­i­larly, the short­age of elec­tric­ity is an­other fac­tor due to which the fruits bought are not prop­erly frozen and used; and re­sul­tantly the in­fant are the most af­fected lot. The public must use boiled wa­ter and avoid tak­ing other sub­stances which are main cause be­hind the dis­ease spread in this sum­mer sea­son. I also request the con­cerned au­thor­i­ties to take con­crete mea­sures to re­duce the risks of di­ar­rhea by fa­cil­i­tat­ing the health­care de­part­ments. — Via email
