President Asif Zardari warned the country could take three years or more to recover from near-month long floods as authorities battled to protect cities from rising waters. The floods have killed 1,500 people and affected up to 20 million nationwide in the country's worst natural disaster, with the threat of disease ever present in the camps sheltering survivors. Your guess is as good as mine, but three years is a minimum, Zardari told reporters when asked how long it would take Pakistan to go through relief, reconstruction and rehabilitation after the floods. I don't think Pakistan will ever fully recover but we will move on, the president added, saying the government was working to protect people from future flooding.
