Health Advisory

its chaotic. I just said summer is coming and probably started early on February, but, the rain pours every afternoon since yesterday, the weather is really unpredictable here in Manila. Anyways, I'm not going to do a weather report. I just drop by to share the DOH (Department of Health) advisory on common illnesses that we may encounter this summer time which are; food poisoning, diarrhea, heat-associated ailments and recreation-associated injuries. The public are advised to take following precautions: Food and drinks · Cook food properly. · Preferably, foods must be eaten immediately after cooking (while still hot). · Left-over food should be refrigerated and reheated before being eaten. · Food handlers should wash their hands before and after food preparation. · If sick, you should avoid preparing food for others. · Avoid drinking water and iced beverages of doubtful quality. · If water quality is doubtful, boil your drinking water for at least 2 minutes. · Peel and wash fruits / vegetables before eating. · Wash hands before and after eating. At the beach · Do not allow children to swim without the company of an adult who can swim and is not drunk. · Avoid staying under the sun with scanty clothes for more than 3 hours as this predisposes to sunburn, heat exhaustion and the worst, heat stroke. · Should you want a tan, drink plenty of fluids so as not to dehydrate yourself. While on the road · Check your vehicle very well before going on a trip. · Bring your repair kit with you. · When drunk, never attempt to drive.
