Deadly Heat Wave
Posted June 23, 2015on:
Temperatures reach as high as 45 degrees Celsius (111 degrees Fahrenheit) on Saturday, just short of an all-time high in the city of 47 C in June 1979 in the southern port city of Karachi
It is the first time ever in my life that I see the rising death rate due to the heat wave and suffocation. The heat wave is so severe that it is unbreakable for us too who are sitting at home having water and electricity. Majority of the people have load shedding in their areas resulting in no water and no power so they out of annoyance are mostly affected.
The Pakistan Rangers, Sindh however established 10 heatstroke relief centers in the city, almost all of them operating inside the Rangers headquarters. Open to all, the centers provide free-of-charge treatment to those who are suffering from heat stroke. Rangers officer was being administered a drip while cold water was being poured on Javed, a civilian patient at the centre. Javed, who works at a nearby shop, said that when he collapsed he was brought to the centre by the Rangers deployed nearby. “I feel much better now,” he claimed. I hope and earnestly wish and pray Allah to forgive us and bless us with heavy showers of rain and to lessen the heat and have mercy
