Three children have died while hundred others have fallen sick as gastro has become contagious in Matyari district of Sindh due to weather changes and consumption of contaminated water, reported 24NewsHD TV channel on Saturday.

Sources in the health department have told 24News that to make matters worse due to negligence on the part of authorities, most of the hospitals in the district are without facilities. 

Ishfaq Memon, a physician, has advised locals to drink filtered water and avoid stepping out of their homes unnecessarily. 

Sources have further said that despite writing to the health department officials several times, they have not taken any notice of the situation.
