With the city witnessing unseasonal showers this week, doctors have a word of caution for citizens regarding their health. This season can prove to be a health menace as there are various diseases that come with the rains and make us susceptible to many diseases which are commonly associated with this season. Dealing with these requires extra-careful precautions as most common illness is related to respiratory system and water and food borne diseases that cannot be overlooked.
Abrupt climate change impacts our health and wellbeing. It not only worsens several existing diseases and conditions, but also opens the door for new pests and pathogens to enter our environment. Climate change in the form of unseasonal rainfall also affects the air movement and quality thus promoting the growth of airborne allergens and pollution which causes significant damage to the human health. Another aspect of unseasonal rainfall is the damage caused to the crops resulting in food contamination and shortage. People who are the most affected and highly vulnerable to diseases due to natural climate fluctuations are children, elderly and the ailing population.
