Diseases to be cautioned during Flood
Flood is a serious natural disaster. The important reason why it is one of the most dangerous natural disasters is because this disaster has several unwelcoming repercussions for the area, where it is affected.
The main repercussion is this natural disaster’s ability to trigger and spread several deadly viruses in the affected areas.
Leptospirosis, cholera, typhoid fever, hepatitis A, conjunctivitis, and dengue fever are the common diseases seen in the flood affected regions.
There is nothing to get panic. There are all preventable, as well as treatable, diseases. If the public health department function in the affected region is efficient and dedicated, it can defiantly bring down the possibility of a virus out break to zero.
However, it is very important to note that the public health is not only the sole responsibility of administers but also the responsibility of each individual.
