Ministry of Health and Medical Services is advising people to have proper and balanced diets during the festive season to protect themselves from infectious diseases.
National Advisor of Communicable Diseases Dr Mike Kama says the ministry received typhoid, diarrhoea, dengue and leptospirosis cases in the first quarter in the past years.
“The advice is basically to have a good and proper meal and balanced diet primarily to be able to boost your immunity system so that you are able to protect yourself from these infections.”
Kama also urged members to keep their environment clean all the times to prevent these infections.
