Chickungunya is spreading rapidly in Makran division. Yet there are no initiatives for its prevention. Especially Turbat,and Gwadar districts have been affected the most. According to Divisional Head Quarter hospital at Turbat report, more than 100 cases have been diagnosed, 70 of them were infected by the virus. However, in Pasni and Gwadar 5 people died due to having no proper treatments because of the lack of facilities at the hospitals. I request to the government of Baluchistan to solve the issue as soon as possible.
