DOGS IN CONTROL: Residents of Liaquatabad, especially those living near Quba Masjid, have been living under constant fear as stray dogs roam the area, making the daily life a risky affair. In fact, the number of dogs has increased in the recent time to a staggering number. As such, their omnipresence has jeopar-dised the safety of schoolgoing children and commuters alike, enhancing the risks of attacks. A constant fear prevails in everyone’s mind, especially the parents. Their fear and anxiety have multipled as the municipal authorities have not carried out any drive against controlling the menace. The municipal authorities must chalk out a plan in this regard.

PHYSICIAN ISSUES: Burnout among medical residents is a pressing issue. According to a report, almost one-third of medical trainees face burnout. This concern leads to a feeling of physical and emotional exhaustion. Some residents also experience insomnia, gastrointestinal problems, and mental health issues like depression and anxiety. If left unchecked, this problem may compromise the health of both medical trainees and patients. Therefore, it is imperative that medical institutions prioritise residents’ wellbeing through flexible scheduling, sufficient human resources, and supportive measures, such as recreational programmes to mitigate the effects of burnout so that a sustainable environment for the medical workforce can be fostered.

INTERNET WOES: The majority of students in Kashmore use internet facilities to be in touch with various academies through applications like Zoom, Google Meet and others. However, for the last few months, the internet speed has slowed down in the area to the extent that even initiating an application is now difficult, if not impossible. This has affected the remote learning facility the students were making use of. The authorities should address the issue promptly.
