According to reports, dengue has spread across Karachi, taking two lives and inflicting 69 others. In a densely populated city, like Karachi, the spread of this disease can prove to be terribly dangerous.

If the spread of dengue is not controlled, then the entire region is at stake. The government should be well-equipped with appropriate facilities so they can limit the potential damage caused.

The government should contemplate and implement a serious plan for eliminating this disease, and the shortage of medical facilities should also be checked. We must strive for the betterment of this generation.
