More deaths and diseases follow the deadly floods in S. Asia

Outbreaks of malaria, dengue, diarrhea and respiratory infections have hit tens of thousands of people in Bangladesh, India and Nepal as the waters from the worst floods in recent years recede, aid agencies have said.

Severe floods have killed up to 1,500 people in South Asia since July, leaving tens of thousands displaced, in open air.

About 40,000 people have been infected in Bangladesh and Nepal, while multiple communities have been entirely wiped out in India’s eastern state of Bihar, Save the Children said.

An estimated 17 million children need protection, healthcare and basic nutrition in India alone, the agency said.
