Pakistani flood affected people forced to drink toxic water
The apathy of the Khairpur administration has reached its pinnacle as it has failed to provide clean potable water link to people who are compelled to drink toxic link stagnant floodwater thus putting their lives at risk, reported 24NewsHD TV channel on Sunday.
Reportedly, people in Nathan Shah are risking their lives when they are consuming dirty stagnant floodwater in view of non-availability of clean drinking water link. Instead of providing potable water link, the administration has installed a filter plant in a vehicle to purify the contaminated stagnant floodwater.
After drinking this water link, several people including hundreds of children have fallen prey to a host of diseases.
*Nathan Shah has become hub of diseases*
As six-foot stagnant floodwater is still submerging Khairpur Nathan Shah link and people are compelled to drink dirty water link and are living in soiled and sub-human conditions, the area has literally turned into a den of infectious diseases.
As many as 90% flood link affectees are suffering from malaria and more than two dozen have succumbed to various diseases.
