In my gated community Cobra, Viper and Ptyas mucosa are present. We are seeing one snake every 15 days. If at all snake bites an adult (or) child what are the risks. Within how much time we should reach hospital and what precautions we should take. Also is it fully risk free if we reach hospital in 30 min?

Hi. It is bit a long topic. I am saying the first aid for snake bite. Tie the area above the bite site. It should not be too tight or too loose. Rush to government hospital. Do not suck the blood from bite site. Snack bite can be treatable easily. Reach hospital as soon as possible within 1 hr.
