Expert Answer

There are measures which can be taken at a personal and community level to prevent the occurrence of a disease.

Public measures:

  • Sewage and chemical wastes should not be released into water bodies.
  • Sewage should be chemically treated first, before being released into water bodies.
  • Garbage must be kept covered, otherwise flies breed on it.
  • All drains must be covered.
  • Do not allow water to stagnate near your house.
  • Pipes carrying potable water should not be located near the sewage pipelines. In case of leakage, the waters get mixed and contaminated.

Personal measures:

  • Eat balanced diet.      
  • Include seasonal fruits and vegetables in your diet.
  • Cook the food properly.
  • Wash the vegetables and the fruits before eating.
  • Avoid too much frying of vegetables. It reduces their nutritional value.
