Skin rash breaks among children in Vanni

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 03 March 2009, 05:22 GMT]
A skin rash that is said to be infected through organisms living in sandy places is spreading fast among the children of the people crowded into the ‘safe zone’ located between Mullaiththeevu sea and lagoon, sources in Vanni said.

Medical authorities, who run short of all types of medicines, are yet to come up with a cure.

The infection could also be bacterial, spreading through the near-shore water, medical sources said.

Starvation, diseases and untold sufferings plague the IDPs held within the ‘safe zone’ in their thousands.
