Health Advisory Mains 2017 : Keeping Safe from Dengue and other Viral Diseases.

Dear Friends,

This is to inform you about the rise in number of Dengue and Chikungunya cases in New Delhi and other areas.

Every year a large number of ForumIAS aspirants fall sick, compromising on their health, life, preparation, score , ranks and service. While you may not get proper Dengue ( which is good news, there are hundreds of other viruses that often give the same trouble as Dengue ( high fever and weakness and diziness ), so we are coming out this advisory for you.


Hence, this is to inform and warn you. Please follow the below . Points (1) and (2) are must if you have joined any library where large number of students congregate.

1. Wear Full Sleeve Clothes by all means during the day. It is recommended that you wear Full Shirts and Full Pants or Jeans during the day, and not shorts.
2. Please wear shoes, instead of slippers and sandals , even if they are uncomfortable. And wear socks under the shoes. Do not at all be casual with respect to footwear because that may just be your Achilles Heel.
3. Use mosquito repellent cream. If you are too lazy, do the following :
4. Put All Out in all rooms of the house, especially kitchen area and all areas where there is wetness.
5. If you find buying bottles of all out expensive, please use Mortein Coils ( the neo-liberal, modern version of Kachhua Chhap ) , and light them up during the day in all rooms
6.Lastly, if you live with flatmates, try to get all flatmates to follow the above. Even if you have some uncooperative flatmates ( we understand ), who may not be willing to contribute money or resources, it is advisable to go the extra mile and pay for everyone, but still do the above so that you are safe. Remember that if your flatmate is not safe, you are also not safe.

ForumIAS Offline Team is requested to print this and put it at see-able places where students come and go.

  • It meant "... healthy in library"

    PS: Edit option has been sucking for weeks. I was expecting China to do some cyber attack soon, but why would they choose forumias?

    Yes, but people in ORN wont do that. I mean you need protection largely during the day. And mosquito net and all that may end up making you sleepy in the day only.

    My 2 Cents to this : If you feel even slightly feverish, drink lots of water, most of the times it may the dreaded virus, or even a normal one, which may trouble you. Since we dont have a known medicinal treatment, drink lots and lots of water, juice, and it is likley despite getting bit by the mosquito, you may get scot-free.

    Sir Ganga Ram Hospital
    Gangaram is too overcrowded, they hardly pay attention. Also its very expensive.
    Dr RK Singhal in front of KBC is better option, he is HOD of BLK medicine dept.
    Also you can visit BLK in morning 9-10 slot for general opd, if want to save money(fee is 300 rupees)
