Pink eye

Friday, Sep 22, 2023

Cases of pink eye or conjunctivitis are on the rise in Karachi. The outbreak is being fuelled by highly humid weather conditions and poor sanitation, as per reports. The disease is also quite contagious. It is advisable for people outside of Karachi to avoid non-essential travel to the city in order to contain the spread of the disease. The prevalence of eye-infections in Pakistan, in general, is also quite concerning and is something our health authorities must take steps to address.
