Water-borne diseases: KWSB asked to supply chlorinated potable water

KARACHI: Pakistan Medical Association Centre Secretary General Dr SM Qaisar Sajjad has urged the civic authorities to ensure proper chlorination of water supplied throughout Karachi city so as to prevent citizens from Naegleria fowleri and other water-borne diseases.

Talking to PPI, Dr Qaisar Sajjad said the water being supplied to the city was not properly chlorinated, as there was more threat of fatal diseases like Naegleria fowleri. Naegleria, known as the brain-eating amoeba, is commonly found in warm freshwater like ponds, tanks, lakes and swimming pools, he said.
