Earlier, the biggest metropolitan city of Pakistan was declared among the world’s worst cities to live in according to the annual report released by Economist Intelligence Unit on Thursday. The index rates living conditions in 172 cities based on more than 30 factors. These are categorized into five categories: stability, health care, culture and environment, education, and infrastructure.
Karachi ranked 168th on the list of the worst cities to live in just above Algiers, Tripoli, Lagos, and Damascus. This is the second year in which the EIU Index has taken into account indicators related to Covid-19.
Karachi suffers from a lack of basic facilities. Among the myriad problems faced by the city, inadequate water supply, well-constructed roads, and better health facilities top the list. The basic infrastructure is crumbling with unplanned urbanization hampering the depleting resources in the city.
