High rainfall can cause flooding. Therefore, the public beware of some diseases that often arise during floods. Floods are usually caused by damaged waterways and high rainfall. Floods can last for several days until the water recedes. Do not stop there, you have to throw away stagnant water in your home. If you can’t do it alone, you can contact the water damage restoration website. This puddle cleaning service will usually use equipment that suits your needs.
Small amounts of water and floods can all cause disease. Especially if it lasts long enough. In the case of floods in several countries, the following are diseases that often arise during floods:
During floods, public drinking water sources, especially sources of drinking water from shallow wells will be heavily polluted. In addition, during floods, there will usually be displacement where facilities and facilities are all limited including the availability of clean water. It all has the potential to cause diarrheal disease along with rapid transmission.
– Dengue fever
During the rainy season, usually, there will be an increase in the breeding place of the Aedes aegypti mosquito, which is a mosquito that transmits dengue fever. This is because during the rainy season there is a lot of garbage such as used cars, used tires and certain places filled with water and puddles occur for some time. The puddle eventually became the breeding ground for the mosquitoes. With the increase in the mosquito population as an infectious disease, the risk of transmission is also increasing.
During the rainy season, especially when there is a flood, the mice that live in burrows will come out to save themselves. These mice will roam around humans where their feces and urine will mix with the flood water. Someone who has a wound then submerged in flood water that has been mixed with the feces/urine of mice containing leptospira bacteria, then that person can potentially be infected and will fall into illness.
