Sindh [Pakistan], May 26 (ANI): At least eight infants reportedly died of malnutrition and water-borne diseases in Pakistan's Mithi region in Sindh.
As reported by Dawn, the infants breathed their last at Mithi's Civil Hospital where they were brought from remote villages for treatment.
Now the total death toll of infant casualties rose to 235 during the first five months of 2018.
The health officials told Dawn that 62 children below five years of age were admitted to the hospital during the past two days and many of them were in very critical condition.
The parents of deceased complained that the incident took place due to lack of healthcare facilities and safe drinking water in their villages.
Moreover, the health and nutrition experts working in Thar urged the government to provide safe drinking water and ensure basic healthcare facilities in every village to prevent such deaths. (ANI)
