Sindh’s Battle Against Malaria: Over 3,000 Cases in a Day

The province of Sindh is grappling with a severe malaria outbreak, with a staggering 3,076 cases reported in a single day. This alarming surge has raised significant concerns about the health and well-being of the population, particularly in the Hyderabad Division, which alone has reported 1,455 cases, indicating a major outbreak in that region.

Moreover, Larkana has documented 767 cases, while Mirpur Khas witnessed 479 patients affected by malaria. The situation is equally distressing in Sukkur, with 225 cases, Shaheed Benazirabad reporting 133 cases, and Karachi, the province’s largest city, confirmed 12 cases.

In the broader context, the cumulative numbers for this year in Sindh paint an even grimmer picture, as the total count of malaria cases has now soared to a staggering 422,903. Within Hyderabad Division, over 203,770 people have fallen victim to this debilitating disease. However, it’s worth noting that Karachi Division, while still affected, has reported the lowest number of cases at 2,786.

Regrettably, this surge in malaria cases has also resulted in the loss of two lives in the province this year. This deeply concerning situation underscores the urgent need for immediate attention and decisive measures to control and mitigate the further spread of this infectious disease in Sindh.
