Epidemic fear mounts
GK CITY REPORTER
Srinagar, Aug 4: With authorities failing to remove the garbage from the last five days due to the curfew, around 1500 metric tons of garbage has piled up in the Srinagar City with health experts fearing outbreak of an epidemic.
Everyday, the city spews some 300 metric tonnes of garbage. But as the stringent curfew has virtually paralyzed Srinagar Municipal Corporation’s garbage lifting operations in the summer capital, the filth is mounting with each passing minute.
Given the hot weather conditions, the health experts fear that there’s a risk of outbreak of ailments like gastroenteritis which could go epidemic in the prevalent circumstances.
“In these hot weather conditions, the garbage if left un-cleared can result in ailments which can take an ugly shape of epidemic,” cautioned a medico, Dr Salim.
