Three children die of gastro in Dadu

DADU: Three children died of gastroenteritis while another three dozen were hospitalised on Sunday. With increase in mercury, gastroenteritis has broken out in different areas of Dadu district, medics said. The health authorities have urged the parents not to permit their children to eat food from street vendors. They said the rise in mercury was the major cause for increase in number of gastroenteritis cases. The hospitals are overburdened due to surge in gastro and there is shortage of beds and medicines. The parents of the affected children have demanded the authorities concerned take measures to overcome the disease besides ensuring appropriate treatment facilities at the government-run hospitals.
