Solar panels, solar stations, solar energy- you have probably heard about all of them. But did you ever hear about solar kids ? They are named so as they are fully charged in the morning and their battery drains gradually and leave them in total paralysis by the end of the day.
They were named so by the villagers as their behaviour is very similar to the Sun. The energy comes to its peak and gradually decreases.
232 tests including several DNA analyses have been recommended so far for the so-called ” Solar Kids “. These are some children from Baluchistan, Pakistan and they were examined by 19 health inspectors on Saturday where these tests and DNA analysis were recommended. The board believes that this may lead to discovery of a brand new disease which is unheard of.
This has turned into a major issue as arrangements have been made to shift these solar kids to Islamabad (capital city of Pakistan) to conduct these tests tonight.
According to Dawn reporters, Pims Vice Chancellor- Dr Javed Akram who chaired the team of 19 doctors said that this situation is unusual and the doctors ” never encountered anything like it before .”
“It was decided that five tests regarding DNA analysis will be held from the UK and US to seek a second opinion and confirm the name of the disease,” he said.
In addition the blood samples are going to be collected from the entire family to notice if there is any mutation or alteration in blood or DNA.
“The team will also collect environmental samples, such as soil, water and air, because those should also be checked to see if there is something wrong with the environment. If it is a new disease, there is the fear that is can spread quickly so all kinds of precautionary measures should be taken,” he added.
