KARACHI: At least 19 people including 16 children have died from a “mysterious disease” within a fortnight in Muhammad Ali Leghari Goth of Keamari district, Karachi, Bol News reported.

Dr Arif of Keamari district said it was confirmed that two of the children died from measles. It appeared as if the rest of them also died from measles, he suspected.

They were trying to determine cause of the deaths and a camp had been established in the area, where a team of expert doctors was present, he maintained.

He said the health experts were taking blood samples of the people. He said calling it a ‘mysterious disease’ was not appropriate. Soon its cause would surface, he maintained.
