Apart from Salmonellosis, Tuberculosis, Typhoid fever, Cholera, Conjunctivitis, Dysentery and Gastroenteritis, the Doctor has disclosed that flies can also cause 'Myiasis.

He said that Myiasis is caused by wearing a cloth flies lay their eggs on. Adding that when the eggs hatch into maggots, they burrow into one's skin.
