The inclement weather surrounding Mumbai and other parts of Maharashtra is causing concern and people are down with viral fever. This is happening after every monsoon season in the Metro city. But this time it is quite hot during the month of September and with odd rains during night the climate has become highly humid and that is the root cause for spreading diseases. People will have to drink more boiled water and keep the body cool. Instead of taking outside food, home food is good for the health and will not harm your body in any way. Prevention is better than cure and people should take all the precautionary measures to avoid catching leptospirosis, malaria, cholera, dengue and swine flu during this period. Care should be taken with school going children as they catch diseases from other children. It is time to keep away from illness.
