The rainy season is here… which means we are facing the possibilities of flood, traffic, and of course the onset of illnesses. Be it the common cold, a lingering cough, or the flu, we need to make sure we take the necessary measures to protect ourselves from getting sick. This month we have done a feature on the top ten things we can do to make sure we are safe during the rainy season. Along with these tips, we did an extensive interview with Dr. Carmen Batacan, an authority on infectious diseases from Asian Hospital. She will talk to us about dengue fever, which plagues our country during this time, and discuss the disease and how to protect ourselves against it. She also elaborated on the symptoms of dengue fever and when we should seek medical help for our loved ones. A must see for all!
