BANGKOK 3 March 2014 (NNT) — Public Health Permanent Secretary Dr Narong Sahametapat has issued warnings against 3 serious diseases during this year’s hot season: cholera, typhoid, and hepatitis A.

In order to help citizens protect themselves from infectious diseases, Dr. Narong has issued warnings against the most widespread illnesses that are likely to occur this hot season.

Referring to the Bureau of Epidemiology’s forecasts, Dr. Narong stated that the empirical 10-year statistics show this year’s infectious diseases will be spreading mostly through food and water from February to May.

The three most serious diseases include cholera, typhoid, and hepatitis A.

According to Dr. Narong, cholera may spread even more this year as the disease has an infectious rate that increases biannually. For typhoid, he reckons that there is likely to be a 10% rise in the number of patients. As for hepatitis A, Dr. Narong has predicted that there will be an increase of 30% in illnesses if the people do not take the necessary precautions in preventing the spread of the disease.

Anyone who goes to a psychiatrist should have his head examined.
