This Summer -Say NO to Diseases
It is a water-borne disease, which gets passed on through contaminated food and water and is caused by a notorious bacterium - Salmonella Typhi. During hot humid weather, this bacterium proliferates in unhygienically stored food & water sources.
Diarrhoea & Dysentery
Watery stools, dehydration and stomach ache - all come together and pulls down the person completely, leaving him exhausted, parched and weak. Causative organisms are various bacteria and virus. Again, the reason behind is contaminated food & water.
Measles & Chicken Pox
Hot and humid weather serves as an ideal breeding ground for various skin rashes and eruptions. Mostly children fall for these viral infections, which manifest in form of small and fluid filled rashes, accompanied with fever and other symptoms.
Excessive high temperature of the atmosphere and exposure to dry-hot wind and sun can lead to a heat stroke. This is failure of the body’s temperature-regulating mechanism, when exposed to excessively high temperatures. The person passes out & develops high fever and associated symptoms.
Simple measures can save you from several complications
- Eat & drink only freshly prepared & hygienically stored food/water
- Avoid eating roadside food
- Avoid stepping out in sun between 11 am to 4 pm
