13 Important do’s and don’ts to avoid health hazards caused by floods

The Chennai floods this season have broken all records. The city has not been hit with a rainstorm of this degree in about 100 years. The entire city is reeling under the effects of this flood, with many becoming victims of diseases and injuries as a result.

Floods in your city can increase the spread of waterborne diseases such as cholera, typhoid, Hepatitis A etc. Not only that, the transmission of vector borne diseases such as dengue, malaria and chikungunya increases as well. Severe flooding can even lead to accidents such as electric shocks. However, there are certain precautions you can take to avoid these potential health hazards.

1. Avoid flood waters as these may have been contaminated with sewage and remains of animals
2. Boil water before consuming it or using it to cook food
3. Make sure you wash your hands thoroughly before eating, and drinking and always use a disinfecting soap
4. Avoid water coming from wells until it has been treated
5. Throw away food that has come in contact with flood water, whether it was refrigerated or not
6. Throw away food that has been standing at room temperature for more than two hours or smells foul or has changed colour and texture
7. Make sure you cover and treat any open cuts or wounds
8. Bathe regularly
9. Make sure you use mosquito repellents at home and on your clothing and skin
10. Don’t touch open wire or sockets or let them come in contact with water as it can cause shocks
11. Don’t allow your pets to go outside as they can become hosts of vector borne diseases
12. Throw away accumulated garbage and debris as they can turn into a breeding ground for rats and mosquitoes
13. Make full use of vaccination facilities

By adopting these simple measures, you can safely avoid the most common types of health hazards prevalent during floods.

Floods In Kerala - What Steps Should Be Taken To Ensure Health & Safety?

Kerala has been severely affected by floods due to the unusually high amount of rainfall which the state has so far received in the month of August 2018. Due to this massive natural calamity, more than 100 people have lost their lives, 85000 people have been displaced and 14 districts are currently put on high alert. This happens to be the worst flood to hit Kerala in the last 100 years.

Understanding the cause of the flood

From the mid-evening of 14th August, heavy rainfall has been witnessed by Kerala, which lead to overflooding of water, as the dams were also filled up to their full capacity.

The state had received 310 mm of rain within the first 24 hours. Most of the dams got opened as the level of water increased due to heavy rainfall, hence causing flood in the low-lying areas of the region.

How is the Govt planning to deal with the situation?

  • The Central Government has sanctioned Rs 100 crore as assistance to deal with the situation and has also stepped up the relief efforts in the region.

  • State Govt. of Kerala intends to take all the measures through their highly efficient primary health care network.

  • Presently, they are also relocating people from hazardous areas along the river banks.

How floods can impact the health of people

  • Contamination of drinking facilities    

  • Increased risk of infection of waterborne diseases     

  • Increased risk of an epidemic such as leptospirosis, malaria    

  • Contamination of food

Health measures that one can undertake

  • Drinking water should be boiled before consumption.

  • Disinfect the dishes in which food has to be consumed.

  • Use a disinfectant to clean your homes or wash the surface with hot soapy water and rinse with chlorine bleach.

  • Do not touch or use any wet electrical equipment.

  • Keep medication kit handy.    

  • People living near river banks should ensure that snakes and rodents do not enter their home.

  • Do not neglect any cuts and bruises as they can develop an infection.

  • Wash your hands with clean water before eating.    

  • Use insect repellants.
