    ISLAMABAD: At least 88 people have died and around eight million affected by floods in Pakistan's southern Sindh province and eastern Punjab province, a top official said.

    Zafar Iqbal Qadir, chairman of the National Disaster Management Authority (NDMA), said that most of the people who lost their homes in Sindh and Punjab have been provided accommodation at different relief camps set up by the government, Xinhua reported.

    Food and other necessities are being supplied to the flood-affected areas, he said.

    The army and navy as well as UN agencies are also involved in rescue and relief work.

    To prevent the outbreak of water-borne diseases like malaria, the government has launched a campaign in the flood-hit areas.

    Media reports said 1,500 dengue cases were registered in Punjab till Saturday.

    The meteorological department has predicted more rains in the coming days, which could further aggravate the situation in the flood-hit areas.

    In 2010, Pakistan was hit by an unprecedented flood, which claimed over 2,000 lives and affected some 20 million people. :tsk::tsk::tsk::whistle::whistle::whistle:
