Flood hits two historic cities
SUKKUR - Sindh Health Department Wednesday disclosed that currently over 0.251 million people from flood-affected areas are suffering from different diseases as the floodwater swept through historic city of Amrijo-Daro and also damaged suburban areas of Sehwan Sharif.
The World Health Organisation and Sindh Government have been cautioned for possible emergence of ‘epidemic diseases’ in flood affectees especially the children.
Underlining the need for coordinated efforts for providing medical services, potable water and sanitation facilities to flood affectees, the Sindh government and WHO decided to initiate joint operations to cope with possible emergence of epidemics. Keeping in view the emergence of diseases, the Sindh government had taken a decision to suspend the educational activities of medical universities and house-job doctors to send them to relief camps for treatment of flood affectees.
A senior official of Sindh government who remained part of the meetings of government to cope with epidemic diseases told TheNation that WHO and other organisations had cautioned for possible emergence of epidemics among the flood affectees.
An official privy to a meeting chaired by Sindh Chief Minister Qaim Ali Shah at Sukkur Circuit House on Wednesday, said that Sindh government had decided to summon the specialists of various diseases at Sukkur to help the doctors at medical camps. Sindh Health Minister Dr Sagheer Ahmed, NDMA officials and representatives from WHO, UNICEF and other international organisations, who are in Sukkur to assess the affects of flood devastation, also attended the meeting.
The meeting was informed that the number of flood affectees had increased to over 4 million in Sindh so far, out of which a huge number of one million people could fall victim to epidemic diseases such as gastro, diarrhoea and skin diseases due to lack of clean drinking water, toilets facilities, sanitation and other necessities.
