You may get skin infection or other water Bourne infection or infection due to mosquito bites. Drink boiled water only to prevent diarrhoea , dont eat outside food, use mosquito nets while sleeping.Empty all containers where rain water has collected. Sprinkle bleaching powder in areas around your house.
