With the growing water pollution, we all are at high risk of being infected by several waterborne diseases. Waterborne diseases may lead to severe health complications and expose us to further serious illnesses. To keep ourselves and our loved ones safe, we need to give special care to the hygiene and purity of the water we are using in our day-to-day life. Drinking unclean and contaminated water is the prime cause of many waterborne diseases in Nepal. So, whether you drink water from a river, pond, well, or municipal water, make sure it is well purified before consumption.
Learn about some common waterborne diseases :
Diarrhea: It is the most common disease caused by impure water. Water contaminated with viral gastroenteritis (stomach flu) causes diarrhea. You can avoid getting infected by drinking purified water from a water purifier.
Cholera: Cholera can be transmitted while traveling due to the consumption of fruits and vegetables irrigated using contaminated water. Its symptoms include severe dehydration and diarrhea. About 10% of the total infected population show signs of severe illness. Cleaning fruits and vegetables properly before consumption, washing hands regularly, and following good sanitary habits are proven to prevent the infection.
Typhoid Fever: Around 20% of the world’s population suffer from typhoid worldwide. It spreads through food, impure water, poor sanitation and is highly contagious. Its symptoms include gradually increasing fever, fatigue, sweating, and diarrhea. To prevent it, refrain from drinking untreated water, and vendor foods.
Escherichia Coli (E. Coli): Few variants of E. Coli that are harmful to human beings exist where humans’ water sources and cattle co-exists. Its symptoms include blood in diarrhea and signs of other waterborne diseases. Avoid water sources with human or animal feces and drink only safe water.
