Watch out for summer diseases

It's summer! You see sunglasses instead of umbrellas for sale, sweaters and jackets getting ditched, and people making plans for that long awaited Holy Week break. What you have to watch out for are the diseases that sneak up on you in the summer months. Diarrhea and conjunctivitis have a particularly higher incidence during these months. Foods spoil easily in the heat, so make sure they are kept in the refrigerator when not consumed. Water should be boiled properly. These are practical measures to prevent diarrhea. Handwashing is always important in the prevention of both the diarrhea and the conjunctivitis. Stay healthy and have a great summer, everyone!
