Sindh Issues Guideline Against Rising Pink Eye Infections

Sindh’s health authorities issued particular instructions to airlines and airports in response to a significant rise in pink eye infections or conjunctivitis.

Provincial Border Health Services (BHS) director Dr. Murtaza Shah released an announcement explaining the revised guidelines. The rules, designed to stop the transmission of pink eye infections, relate to both healthcare workers and airlines.

The airlines that serve the immediate vicinity have been asked to spot passengers showing pink eye symptoms and recommend them to get in touch with the healthcare department’s accepted doctor located at the airports. Bans on travel for passengers with pink eye infections aren’t included in the suggestions made.

Dr. Shah made it quite clear that a doctor designated by the health department will look into affected travelers plus offer appropriate advice on traveling whenever needed. The extremely contagious illness known as pink eye can be set on by bacteria or viruses and transmits rapidly from one person to the next.

Visitors are encouraged to maintain essential self-care and hygiene with the goal of reducing their risk of getting or spreading pink eye. These steps are essential for preventing the infection’s spread and protecting the health and safety of people who travel.
