Puttur: Citizens susceptible to diseases due to climatic change post monsoon

Daijiworld Media Network – Puttur (DV)

Puttur, Nov 5: People living in rural areas are suffering from fever and cough every 15 days for the last two months due to change in climatic conditions and many have got affected due to this factor.

People develop fever during every season and it spreads like a contagion once or twice every year. There are fewer cases of viral fever this year during monsoon which usually becomes contagious during the beginning of the season.

However, viral fever is now spreading rampantly after the monsoon as the weather is foggy during the mornings.

Several people have been visiting private hospitals for consultation and to buy medicines both in the rural areas and in the urban areas for the last 10 days. Moreover, several people are also visiting the Primary Health Centers, community health centers and taluk level government hospitals for treatment.


Fever, body pain, cold, and cough are some of the common symptoms reported among the patients. They have been advised to take treatment for five to six days. The fever which would normally recede in two days now continues for over a week.

In rural areas, people of the labour class are advised to take treatment of one day and the next day they attend to their work. But, this time they have had to take a longer time off from their work due to the illness which also results in weakness as a fallout of the fever. Doctors suggest a line of treatment and rest for a few days.

As the fever is contagious it affects all the family members and in 10 days most of the family members end up suffering from fever. Sneezing contributes largely to the spread of the fever among the family members.

Affected due to weather

Earlier, fever used to spread during the beginning of monsoon. But, this time due to lack of rainfall, there was no cases of fever reported during the monsoon. Due to the climate change, incidences of illness have increased. Proper medication and rest is the only solution.

As people used masks during the pandemic, the spread of contagious diseases became less. Using masks prevented the spread of all types of diseases. When masks are used the spread of diseases can be prevented. Medical experts say that if the hands are cleaned and sanitised the spread of viral diseases can be prevented.

    RTPCR is a 50:50 tool; in my family at least two people were flummoxed when they got contrarion reports when the test was done in two high end hospitals in this Smart City!! I would term this plandemic as the biggest hoax in history! Those who have taken the emergency use jab are living in fear after seeing so many sudden deaths in very healthy people including children and youngsters!

    IMHO; face masks, false positives and negatives, experimental treatment using all different combination of drugs including powerful steroids, contaminated O2 and ventilators, high alcohol containing sanitizers, and the intense fear of the infection (mass paronia s); use of experimental (emergency use) jabs have taken the maximum toll than the infection (??) itself!

    Exactly, and all infections were labelled as covid using RTPCR test tool which prevented deaths from cancers, kidney and heart attacks and even road accidents which modern medicines had failed to eradicate all these years.

    New wine in old bottle story; regarding masks😷, wearing them is counterproductive as they themselves would be contaminated heavily and give impetus to some infection; better to breathe fresh air and be naturally in consonance with the atmosphere and develop natural immunity! Only people with low immunity be on guard for any serious bacterial infection! Also fever can ne a symptom of malaria, dengue etc which needs to be discerned!!

    Some of the wrong advisory in this article in my opinion - Fever spreads among the people, it's a symptom and not a disease but body's defence mechanism against any infections. Secondly masks prevented infections during covid years. This is only an assumption not based on any scientific study. Any airborne viral infections can't be prevented by use of any masks or hand sanitizers except bacterial infections.
