Preventing Health Risks from the Floods

The unprecedented floods that hit many states in Peninsula Malaysia over the weekend have raised concerns about health risks faced by people who have been affected and those at flood relief centres. Professor Dr Nazimah Idris, Medical Director, IMU Healthcare & EXCO, Mercy Malaysia, takes us through the possible health concerns, and how to prevent diseases and infections from spreading.
