Four children die of disease in Thar

MITHI: At least four children died of an epidemic in the Thar desert on Tuesday, Aaj News reported.

In the last six days 13 children have died of diseases like Gastro, at the Mithi Civil Hospital.

Over 90 children are under treatment for water-borne disease at various hospitals at Thar, after RO plants that were installed by the government to ensure clean drinking water in the desert where a drought killed hundreds in 2013– became dysfunctional.
