Quezon City officials asked the city’s health department to be well prepared to accommodate patients suffering from ailments associated with common rainy season ailments.

Councilors Allan Francisco and Victor Ferrer Jr. urged the city’s health centers to conduct a massive information drive on how to prevent being afflicted with heat-related illnesses.

They said that health center personnel should not only go to barangay halls, and meet their officials but to the households of residents to conduct a health information drive concerning wellness concerns.

Quezon City health officials said that the most common diseases include respiratory infections; pneumonia; food-borne sickness like food poisoning; water- borne diseases like  gastroenteritis; dengue fever; leptospirosis  and dog bites.

Ferrer wants to ensure that the Quezon City Health Department have ample medicines available at the city’s central warehouse were the city’s health centers can readily obtain their needed medical supplies.

Among the most sought after medicines are antibiotics, analgesics/antipyretics, anti-asthma, and anti-hypertensive.

Based on the recommendations of the city health officers, Ferrer appealed to local residents to take preventive measures to avoid the health risks and discomforts.

For his part, Francisco appealed to the public never used the flooded streets as their “private swimming pools’’.

“Urine from rats and toxic waste that find their way to the flooded streets can be very dangerous that for sure,’’ Francisco said.
