He said preventive measures can save children from the deadly disease while timely and proper medication saves life of the children.

He directed MS Civil Hospital Tando Allahyar Dr Waseem Shaikh to meet the requirements of the patients and fulfill the shortage of medical staff because it has come to his knowledge that proper treatment and medicines are not being provided to the patients and certain medical equipments are also out of order.
