ISLAMABAD, Apr 15 (APP): Ever-Increasing seasonal dust and pollen allergy is at its peak by this time of the year in the federal capital giving rise to air-born diseases thus making life tough for the residents.

Once few in numbers, the pollen and dust allergy victims are
increasing day by day, while the authorities concerned are not adopting measures on emergency basis to eradicate this source of irritation.

“A drive is launched jointly by National Institute of Health
(NIH) and Capital Development Authority (CDA) to cope with pollen allergy, and in this regard, NIH has deployed doctors and paramedic staff which are dealing almost 500 allergy patients daily here at NIH laboratory,” said an official of NIH.
