The blazing sun is yet again set to bake Karachi as the mercury level is expected to soar up to 43 degrees in Karachi on Tuesday.
Reports of deaths from heatwave caused quite a chaos is the metropolis. However; no verification has still surfaced. Renowned social worker Faisal Edhi claimed yesterday that heatwave has killed dozens of people in different parts of Karachi.
He said that at least 160 bodies were brought to Edhi Foundation’s morgues on Sunday and Monday out of which 64 had died from heatstroke and load-shedding.
Faisal Edhi further maintained that most of the bodies were brought to the morgues in Landhi, Korangi and Sohrab Goth.
On the contrary, Sindh Health Secretary Dr. Fazlullah Pechuho has rejected Faisal Edhi claims and asserted that not a single person died from heatstroke in the past three days.
