MHO Warns on Wading Through Flood Water

Since it is rainy season and flooding on certain areas in the Island is experienced during such time, the Malay Municipal Health Office gave caution on wading through flood waters.

The Municipal Health Officer of Malay, Dr. Adrian Salaver said that wading through flood water is dangerous since various diseases could be contracted not only by kids but also by adults. This is regardless whether the water is from overflowing sewage or not.

Salaver strongly recommended the public to get into the habit of washing feet after wading through flood water, and to wash hands before meals to avoid contracting different kinds of diseases.
