Summers are here and residents of Gurgaon are feeling the extreme temperatures of the day. As a result of which, hospitals in Gurgaon have witnessed an upsurge in the number of gastroenteritis, dehydration and heat stroke cases.
every passing summer, the story is the same, where temperatures soar
above the normal. It is not only in Gurgaon, but also in other parts
of the nation, where temperatures are above normal. Presently the
temperatures hover around 40 degree Celsius. There is a serious need
for people to take care of themselves, when they come out of their
comfort zone – office and houses, else they might fall sick.
Harish Khemchandani, Physician in Gurgaon
said, ''One should take as
much fluids as possible. Fluids may include lassi, juice, water etc.
But, one should be careful that one takes quality drinks, not just
those randomly available on the streets.'' This may be a solution to
those who suffer from dehydration, but when it comes to
gastroenteritis, it could be a major problem.
''Due to high
temperatures, there are chances that the water and food might get
infected, which just increases the chances of Gastroenteritis.'' said
Dr. Harish. There are a number of hawkers in Gurgaon, which caters to
many corporate employees outside their swanky buildings, hence there
are chances that the food might have got infected as well. ''One
should try to avoid street food.'' said Dr. Harish. The
situation is even worse for those who are involved in field work.
There is no way out for them to avoid the harsh weather. But, they
need to take precautions such as carrying water and also avoiding
direct contact with sunlight, if possible.
