TURBAT: The citizens of Karachi already had a lot of maladies on their plates but now, a new disease has been introduced. Doctors say the symptoms are akin to the chikungunya disease. While many people are presenting with symptoms, no one has yet passed away, thankfully. Currently, the disease is limited to certain areas of Karachi. If the government does not take serious steps against the virus, then it can affect the entire city as well the country. I request the Government of Pakistan and relevant authorities to take serious action and control the spread of this disease via mosquitoes.
