Un-hygenic food stalls

Umme Maryam

Road vendors are more focused on their business rather than public health. Many vendors have set up their food stalls in places surrounded by flies, mosquitos, and drainage water. Even though their surrounding is full of dirt and germs, their edibles aren’t covered properly. And the utensils they are using are washed with very dirty water.

These unhygienic foods cause health issues like diarrhea, jaundice, cholera, typhoid, food poisoning, and paratyphoid.

The concerned authorities should direct roadside vendors to adopt strict safety measures like adopting a clean spot on the roadside. Using disposable utensils, paper glasses, and proper covering of edibles. Keeping their stalls, pots, and cooking utensils clean as well. The authorities must take action against the ones violating these terms.
