What can you do?
As all these diseases root from Mosquitoes, the main task is to bar it from reaching you. Though it’s quite impossible to be sure that you are free from mosquitoes everywhere, there are a few points you should remember to make sure you do your part. Let’s have a look at what we can do to ensure mosquito free surroundings:
- Use mosquito repellents at home, especially after the sunset when mosquitoes are most active. Dengue mosquitoes bite during the day so it’s most practical to be on the alert then as well.
- For infants or small kids, continuous exposure to repellents can be harmful. Use mosquito nets for them and keep them dresses in full sleeves clothes.
- Dry your coolers or regularly clean it with a spoonful of kerosene or other mosquito repellent oils available in the market.
- Don’t let water collect in pots or old tyres/utensils on your rooftop or abandoned part of the house.
- Keep your surroundings clean. If your locality isn’t clean, drop a complaint with the MCD or combine as a society to get it cleaned.
- Send your child to school in full sleeve clothes and as parents ensure that the school is taking up measures to fight mosquito breeding within the school premises.
- Avoid going to parks in the evenings during this period.
- Ensure fogging is done by concerned authorities from time to time to kill mosquitoes around your locality.
Being safe is key. If you experience any of the symptoms for any of these diseases in you or your family members, immediately take them to the nearest health care centre to fight it at the earliest. As long as you wait, the case may get severe. Bansal Global Hospital is on alert mode this season and is constantly striving to decrease the number of cases and eradicate it in the earliest stage. But it’s only possible when every one of us joins hands and fights it! Don’t let a small mosquito ruin your health. Stay safe, stay healthy!
