Epidemics break out in Balochistan flood areas

23 September, 2012

DERA MURAD JAMALI: Waterborne diseases have turned into epidemics in flood-hit areas of three districts of Balochistan, including Jaffarabad, Nasirabad and Jhal Magsi.

Hospital sources confirmed on Saturday that a large number of flood-stricken people suffering from waterborne diseases were brought to hospitals. "Most of the patients are suffering from malaria, gastro, diarrhoea and stomach diseases," a doctor said.

The relevant departments are not making serious efforts to drain out five-foot-deep floodwater in Allahabad, Baba Kot, Mir Hasan, Dera Allahyar, Tambo and others areas. Tens of thousands of flood-hit people have been sitting under open sky.

Hospitals sources said that at least 13 patients bitten by snakes were given medical aid.

Meanwhile, Nasirabad Division Commissioner Shehryar Sultan advised flood-hit people to be calm and observe patience. He said that although flood played havoc at a large scale in eastern part of the province, efforts have been made to provide relief to the flood victims.

Sultan said that medical camps have been set up to provide medical aid to patients.

End.
