Gratisun - The rainy season comes with a series of health problems. It is believed, during the rainy season the disease is easier to attack. Especially now, the Covid-19 pandemic is still sweeping the world. Really?

Here is an explanation of Lecturer in Epidemiology of the Faculty of Public Health (FKM) Universitas Airlangga (UNAIR) Laura Navika Yamani, S.Si., M.Si., Ph.D.

Laura said, the rainy season causes the body's endurance to fall, so that various infectious diseases more easily penetrate the body's defenses.

"Similarly, in countries with four seasons, usually the endurance decreases in the winter. During the rainy season or winter the production of immune cells will decrease," explained Laura quoted from the UNAIR website, Monday (11/29/2021).

A number of diseases that appear during the rainy season are Influenza, Diarrhea, and Covid-19 because the symptoms are similar to Influenza.

"When heavy rains cause flooding and standing water. It can also cause sources of infection in contaminated water. So it can be Diarrhea, Influenza, or Covid-19," he said.

Take Care of Health with Health Protocols

Maintaining health in the rainy season during a pandemic according to Laura is not much different from the dry season, either with or without a pandemic.

First, because it is still a pandemic, he suggested that the public still implement health protocols.

Regulating diet, getting enough rest, and keeping the mind from stress is important.

"Stress not only triggers Covid-19 disease, but also any diseases if we are already stressed are more vulnerable," he said.

In addition, do not forget to always exercise and exercise movements to keep the body fit.

Although the weather is often cloudy during the rainy season and makes the body feel lazy to move, exercise can be done anywhere including inside the house.

Not to forget, the consumption of vitamins and supplements is also needed to keep the body strong.

He said, the supply of vitamins and healthy foods by implementing a healthy lifestyle can increase immunity during the rainy season.

"So if we do not compensate with nutritious food, adequate rest, self-control so as not to stress, a healthy lifestyle, our endurance can decrease. Well this is what must be watched so that we are not vulnerable, "he said.

According to Laura this year the public is more experienced facing the rainy season during the pandemic.

Moreover, entering this year, the public has been getting the vaccine. Even so, a healthy lifestyle must still be done.

"I feel the impact of this vaccine is not only to keep us from Covid-19, but other diseases associated with the respiratory tract are also lower. But we can't rely entirely on vaccines. Keep applying a healthy lifestyle and recognize as early as possible the conditions of body changes, "said Laura.

Towards the turn of the year, health problems due to the rainy season should be wary. Because, various diseases are believed to be easier to attack the body during the rainy season. Especially now that Covid-19 cases are still popping up.
