Pakistani health officials reported an outbreak of waterborne diseases on Thursday in areas hit by recent record-breaking flooding, as authorities stepped up efforts to ensure clean drinking water is available for the hundreds of thousands of people who lost their homes in the disaster.
Diarrhoea, skin diseases and eye infections are spreading at relief camps set up by the government across the country.
Over 90,000 diarrhoea cases were reported from one of the worst-hit provinces, Sindh, in the past 24 hours, according to a report released by the health officials.
