Heat at­tack

Pakistan Observer - - OPINION - WAFAA SIRAJ

Un­like the other parts of the coun­try where heavy rains hit the cities, Kara­chites pray for it as the tem­per­a­ture is grad­u­ally in­creas­ing day by day and will be on its peak in the months of May and June.

Ac­cord­ing to Met. of­fice, sim­i­lar to the last year, a se­vere heat wave will strike the city yet again. Keep­ing in mind that last year more than 1200 peo­ple died be­cause of heat­stroke, the Pro­vin­cial gov­ern­ment have or­dered the Health depart­ment to take the pre­cau­tion­ary mea­sures but no­body knows whether these or­ders will be im­ple­mented or wan­der in the air.

There­fore, the pre­emp­tive mea­sures should be taken to save as many lives as we can and pre­vent the risk of ca­su­al­ties. Oth­er­wise, this is­sue will be­come up­com­ing burn­ing topic in lo­cal and in­ter­na­tional me­dia and gi­gan­tic affliction for the peo­ple of Karachi.
