KARACHI: Cholera has been recorded in Karachi at least 149 times this year. The virus outbreak spreads across the province as temperatures rise. Experts have recommended a safe drinking water supply and preventative steps.

The Vibrio cholerae bacterium infects the intestines, causing cholera, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Cholera germs can enter the body through food or drink that has been polluted. The infection can be moderate or life-threatening, depending on the severity of the illness.

According to Dr Adil, the head of the emergency department at the Sindh Government Korangi Hospital, cholera is spreading in the city and he is worried about it.

At Eid, he warned citizens to be cautious about eating and drinking, since enormous crowds flocked to food outlets in large numbers.

People with cholera should see a doctor “immediately,” according to medical professionals because dehydration can lead to brain malfunction if left untreated.
