Three more children fell victim to deadly Quinsy disease on Saturday, taking the death toll during the recent month to 34.
According to the Health Department, the two children suffering from Quinsy disease had been under treatment in Children’s Hospital. With these two deaths, the death toll from Quinsy has climbed to 34.
Despite massive losses due to the deadly disease, the Punjab Health Department has failed to chalk out a solid strategy to overcome the disease and save precious lives.
Sources said the government hospitals were facing shortage of medicines and health facilities due to lack of funds, but authorities have turned a deaf ear to the issue which was matter of grave concern.
