One of the patients, called persistent Maryum, is seven years of age and hails from Peshawar, and the other patient is 18-year old Aneesha Naresha from Karachi. Both were experiencing drug-safe or stubborn epilepsy, for which they were dealt with and afterward released from the emergency clinic two or three hours.
