People warned to be aware of six summer diseases

BANGKOK, April 10 (TNA) - People should be aware of six diseases during this summer season, particularly during the Songkran festival next week, Bangkok Governor Apirak Kosayodhin warned here on Monday.
The six diseases include diarrhea, cholera, dysentery, typhoid, rabies and that caused by poisonous food, according to the governor.
"People should be more careful of the diseases during the summer--by washing their hands before taking food and consuming only safe food and water. People should also make sure that food and water containers they use are clean and safe," Mr. Apirak suggested.
For the forthcoming Songkran festival, he warned motorists not to drive when they are drunk and to always wear helmets when riding motorcycles.
As well, he asked Songkran revellers not to use white clay-powder and ice, adding that violators might be arrested and fined if they fail to cooperate with the official warnings and campaigns on "safe Songkran".
For girls, he suggested they wear covered clothes,
Meanwhile, Permanent Secretary for the Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA) Nathonon Thavisin said that the BMA had set up 66 mobile public health teams at all public health centres in the capital who would be dispatched to assist people in any urgent or emergency cases during this summer season.
Training on safe food had also been organized for local food sellers, as well as for teachers and officials at more than 900 schools in the city, she noted.
