Di­ar­rhea

Pakistan Observer - - OPINION - F Z BALOCH

Pak­istan is among the top five coun­tries where di­ar­rhoeais play­ing havov in the form of death ofthe chil­dren. Di­ar­rhea oc­curs due to drink­ing dirty or un­clean water. So, the cases of di­ar­rhea are in­creas­ing rapidly. 350,000 chil­dren die be­fore the age of five in five coun­tries, in­clud­ing Pak­istan.

Glob­ally 2.5 bil­lion cases of di­ar­rhoea are re­ported; and in 2014, 150,000 cases of it were re­ported. In Pak­istan up to 150 chil­dren die daily. The main rea­son for this fa­tal dis­ease is poor san­i­ta­tion. Wash­ing hands with soap and clean water can re­duce it. I re­quest to gov­ern­ment to pro­vide good san­i­ta­tion and con­trol the di­ar­rhea. — Via email
