Four more children die in Tharparkar, toll hits 191

All of the four minor children were admitted at the Civil Hospital Mithi, where they breathed their last.

The Thar desert, straddling the Indian border and one of Pakistan’s poorest areas, has seen an alarming number of children suffering pneumonia or diarrhoea due to a dangerous mix of drought, poverty and poor health infrastructure.

The deaths have prompted criticism for the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP), which governs in the southern province of Sindh where part of the desert is located.
