The plight of flood survivors continues as eight members of a family died in a matter of days due to cerebral malaria and gastroenteritis near Jhirak village in Thatta district, 24 NewsHD TV channel reported.

At least seven people have died in nearby villages due to water-borne diseases, according to reports. The flood victims blamed the local administration and the health department for the accident.

They said the poor performance of the officials is creating problems for the victims to survive after the recent rain and flood disaster.

They said that due to unsanitary environment and food, several children and old people are fighting helplessly against various epidemic diseases in makeshift huts.

They also said that a man named Juman of Juman Bukiru village near Jhikar area died of brain malaria and gastroenteritis in a few days, creating panic among the survivors.

Among the deceased, Juman’s wife, daughter, daughter-in-law, two nephews named Nawaz and Zahid, two nephews and one nephew’s daughter died one after another, they said.

Most of the patients who died were shifted to Jheke Hospital for treatment, but two patients died in Jamshor Hospital, alleging that the hospital administration did not give them proper treatment.

Three women and four men, including Urs Jharko, and Jan Muhammad Jharko, a resident of Arbab Maluk Jharko, another village in Jhik, died of the viral disease. Many nearby villages still have stagnant water, which is acting as an agent for spreading malaria and other viral diseases throughout the area and several cases are being reported everywhere, they added.

More than 20 children and elderly people are fighting for their lives in their homes due to lack of medical facilities in the flood-hit areas.

The health department and other concerned officials were repeatedly informed about the disease but to no avail. No one went to the area to spray against malaria and provide medical facilities to the villagers, they added.
