Pay special attention to the food in the refrigerator, if the refrigerator has been invaded by rain or has had a power outage, it is best to discard the food.

Kitchen utensils should be disinfected after being soaked

If the home is flooded and the kitchenware and tableware are soaked, they should be disinfected before use.

Disinfection method: put the washed tableware into the pot, completely soak it in water for heating, and when the water boils, keep it for more than 15 minutes to disinfect.

Take care to prevent these diseases!

Heavy rain weather will not only cause accidental damage, but also bring microorganisms and viruses, bringing hidden dangers to human health, and these diseases should attract the attention of the people in the disaster area↓

Skin diseases: Wading water can easily cause bacteria to enter the skin and lymphatic vessels, causing diseases such as erysipelas and lymphangitis. After soaking in stained water for a long time, the barrier function of the skin is destroyed, and fungi and bacteria can easily cause skin diseases such as intertriginous rash and athlete's foot.

Tips: People with a history of diabetes need to pay more attention to get out of the sewage environment in time, dry their feet, and prevent fungal and bacterial infections.

Infectious diseases: After floods, typhoid fever, hepatitis, cholera, dysentery, infectious diarrhea may occur.

Tips: If you have fever, abdominal pain, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting or other physical discomfort symptoms, you must seek medical attention in time, and you should not take antidiarrheal drugs, antibiotics and other drugs without authorization.

Other diseases: After heavy rainfall, it is necessary to do a good job of preventing flies and rodents and mosquitoes, try to avoid contact with livestock with diseases such as cattle, horses, sheep, pigs, and prevent diseases transmitted by mosquito bites such as malaria and Japanese encephalitis and diseases such as epidemic hemorrhagic fever and leptospirosis. Some provinces in the middle and lower reaches of the Yangtze River in China need to pay attention to the risk of schistosomiasis transmission.

Tip: In schistosomiasis-endemic areas, try not to contact infected water, and personal protection should be done when contact is necessary.
