More disease outbreaks in rainy season

With the heaviest rainfall expected to occur in January and early February this year, the rainy season may heighten risks of more disease outbreaks in Indonesia.

But the seasonal impact on bird flu is unclear, according to an official at the Health Ministry. The public needs to be warned of diseases like influenza and diarrhea caused by viruses, dysentery and leptospirosis caused by bacteria and parasites from septic tanks, animal waste and contaminated water and noncontagious diseases like asthma and rhinitis.
