If you are living in Pakistan than you should always feel ready to face unwanted and insane restrictions and bans. Yes I am annoyed of this now since I came dry from a hotel pool; yes Government banned it as a precautionary and preventive measure against recent outbreak of Dengue fever in Punjab and some parts of Sindh. Doctors say that Aedes mosquito which transports this virus usually breeds over clean water so the government thought nothing but to ban public pools.
Why will that little thing breed over chlorine water which keeps filtered after every twelve hours while there are plenty of resorts for them like spilled gutters, leaked sewerage lines and rotting rain waters? If draining swimming pools is the solution than government should drain all lakes, ponds and fountains too.
