Menace of quacks

Published Sep 12, 2013 07:42am

THIS is apropos the news item (Aug 25) regarding the Punjab Health Care Commission’s letter to the Punjab health secretary about curtailing the menace of quackery, which is commendable.

I want to draw the attention of health authorities towards the other provinces also where quacks are playing with the lives of citizens all over the country.

Even in my city of Naudero, I have counted at least nine clinics which are being run by quacks.
