Weather in Punjab: Diseases may increase after flood!

Chandigarh (Ashwani Chawla). Weather in Punjab: Considering the flood-like situation in various parts of the state, the Punjab Health and Family Welfare Department has issued a health advisory to protect people from waterborne or vector-borne diseases. Accumulation of water increases the risk of spreading such diseases. Therefore, it is advised to drink the water after watching.

While warning, Dr. Adarsh ​​​​​​Pal Kaur, Director of Health and Family Welfare, said that the health department always strives to keep the people safe and healthy during such natural disasters and that the department provides 24-hour health services in the affected areas. He advised people to strictly follow the warnings and use only safe water for drinking and preferably boiled water. To prevent infection, it is necessary to wash hands regularly with soap.

The advisory said that food soaked in flood water should not be consumed. If someone develops a fever or diarrhea, they should seek government health facilities, including medical camps, and should not self-medicate without medical advice. If there are several cases of an infectious disease in an area (ie more than 3 cases of an infectious disease in the same area), the nearest health facility must be informed immediately.

The advisory further states that bacterial skin infections are often caused by contaminated water and insect bites during floods and people are advised to wear rubber shoes and long-sleeved clothing to avoid such infections. For any kind of treatment, one should go to the nearest health facility. The department has also advised against venturing into flood waters, as snake bites are also common during floods.

Wear high shoes if you have to wade in the water. In case of a snake bite, take the patient to the nearest health center as soon as possible. Dr. Adarsh ​​Pal ordered the concerned officials to spray larvicide to prevent the spread of vector-borne diseases. He further said that all operations are monitored 24 hours a day by the state headquarters team.
