Outbreak of Diarrhoea is as a result of women not keeping their breasts clean-Egypt PM

Hisham Qandil,the Egyptian prime minister has blamed a diarrhoea epidemic sweeping through rural areas on women not keeping their breasts clean.

Prime Minister Hisham Qandil said he had witnessed children suffering from diarrhoea immediately after they had been breastfed because their mothers hadn’t cleaned themselves probably.

He added that many women in rural Egypt don’t even bother to clean their breasts at all before feeding their youngsters.

Qandil was speaking about the spate of recent epidemics in Egypt’s rural communities during an address at a cabinet meeting.

Women members present were noticeably uncomfortable as Qandil made the comments, according to an online report from International Business Times.
