What do you mean by sorter's disease?
Hi. Wool industry is the most important means of livelihood for many people. But sorter's job is very risky beacause sometimes they get infected by a bacterium called anthrax, which causes a fatal blood disease called sorter's disease. Such types of diseases are called occupational hazards.
