Health Advisories on Flood Related Diseases

The Department of Health just posted health advisories on the 3 diseases prevalent in our country at present, namely, dengue, leptospirosis, and athletes foot.  These illnesses are caused by widespread flooding brought by heavy monsoon rains and typhoons.  Dengue and Leptospirosis are the more severe ones and have a markedly rising number of cases and deaths.  Athletes foot, although milder, may cause complications like secondary bacterial infection or sepsis if not treated and if continuously immersed in dirty water. These advisories will help Filipinos become aware of the symptoms of each of the diseases and knowledge on how to prevent it.
