Abstract

The study was conducted in an a urban slum area of Dhaka city. The environmental samples (soil and water) were collected from Mirpur Bihari camp area including Madrasha camp, Muslim camp and ADC camp.

In wastewater samples, 14.29% had single infection, 85.71% double infection, whereas, observation on 20 soil samples by TAC system, total 12 types of pathogens were recorded such as Shigella, Aeromonas, Campylobacter, Vibrio cholerae, Blastocystis, Salmonella, Plesiomonas, Bacteroides fragilis and Rota virus including Entamoeba sp., Ancylostoma sp. and Trichuris sp.
