Watch out for Hepatitis

Dear Editor,

Just read in a Diario de Yucatan of October 6, 2017 newspaper that the conjunctivitis epidemic is not fully over yet and we are now facing a Hepatitis outbreak. This one will damage your liver. As usual the schoolchildren are the most vulnerable.

Extreme hygiene is a part of the solution; keeping the flies away is very important. Washing well the kitchenware and separating the infected person’s utensils is also of utmost importance.

GOB should start a vaccination program. Hope we don’t wait until it is upon us to try to stem its propagation. Like I stated before: If we do not take care of our health, it will cost much more to take care of our disease.

Yours in health.

Regards,
Romel Cuello
