Navi Mumbai witnessed a surge in the number of children with viral fever
“Children also have respiratory, jaundice and typhoid diseases”
Parents should take preventive steps for kids, such as making mosquito resistant at home, ensuring appropriate hydration and healthy eating.
The rain has developed havoc in Mumbai, and children’s disease also starts to rise during this moment as they are suddenly subjected to an enormous fluctuation in temperature and humidity and therefore a significantly bigger amount of germs that the body has to combat. Experts witness instances of childhood viral fever, dengue, malaria, diarrhea, and respiratory infections, and have also warned that even instances of leptospirosis may occur. Experts, therefore, recommend that parents take care of kids by making the house mosquito-proof, ensuring appropriate hydration, providing them with boiled water and avoiding eating street food. Mumbai may be subjected to dengue, malaria, and diarrhea.
Dr. Suresh Birajdar, Neonatologist & Pediatrician, Motherhood Hospital, Kharghar said “I’ve witnessed a 30 percent increase in this month’s amount of kids with viral fever compared to June. There should be no stagnant water around the home that is a breeding ground for mosquitoes to avoid kids from deadly viral fever, dengue, malaria, diarrhea, and other illnesses. Choose a mosquito net or maintain your home’s doors and windows closed at night”.
He added “Give boiled water to your kids and assist them to remain well hydrated by cleaning up the system and flushing out toxins such as germs and bacteria. Enhance the immunity of your child by having him/her adopt a diet rich in vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants as it offers the body with a lot of dietary and protective value. Avoid providing raw foods such as salad to your kid that gets contaminated quickly. Wash fruits and vegetables in clean water and prevent leftover food from feeding your kid. Don’t offer junk, spicy or sugary foods to your kids”.
