Pirojpur Correspondent: Outbreak of diarrhea has increased in Kaukhali of Pirojpur. The number of diarrhea patients in the diarrhea ward of the Upazila Health Complex has been increasing day by day. Older people and children in particular are being affected. A visit to the Upazila Health Complex on Sunday found three people, including a child, suffering from diarrhea and admitted to the diarrhea ward. The suffering of the patients has increased due to the lack of adequate fans in the diarrhea ward. Earlier, 20 people had contracted diarrhea in the last one week. Two-year-old Fatema is admitted with a diary. His mother said that we are in a lot of trouble with our children because all the fans in this ward are broken.

Upazila Health and Family Planning Officer. Subrata Karmakar said the health complex has adequate supply of medicines and saline for the treatment of diarrhea patients but there is a shortage of various types of syrups including antibiotics for children. Three more said the diarrhea had increased due to the extreme heat. The incidence of diarrhea is higher this year than in any previous year. In order to be protected from this, everyone should take healthy food and follow the hygiene rules.
