Monsoon in Pakistan usually starts in July and ends in September. Monsoon brings wet and dry seasons with a wide temperature variations. The rain is very unpredictable in monsoon and at times rain causes disasters, while when there is less rain the temperature goes up again, and the humidity level increases. In monsoon, the risk of being exposed to multiple bacteria, viruses, fungus and other infections goes two times higher. More moisture in the air enables harmful bacteria and viruses to spread & grow more easily which causes a drastic increase in the number of diseases. There are many pharma companies in Pakistan but Don valley is one of the top pharmaceutical manufacturers & exporters in Pakistan that manufacture & export these cost-effective medications (Devoquine, Macrocid, Liomycin) for the treatment of common contagious infections and bacterial invasion caused during monsoon.
Common Monsoon Diseases in Pakistan:
- Dengue fever
- Typhoid fever
The most common mosquito-borne disease that can affect you in the monsoon season in Pakistan is malaria. Malaria is a serious disease caused by parasites of the genus Plasmodium commonly called “home mosquitoes”. The parasites are transmitted to humans by infected Anopheles mosquitoes, which bite at night when the skin or mucous membranes of their victims are moist.
Common Symptoms Include:
- Headache, vomiting, fever, and chills
- Anaemia with fatigue and weakness
Dengue is the most common disease caused during monsoon and is spread through mosquito bites by the Aides species, which is also commonly called the “clean water home mosquitoes’. Dengue fever is a life-threatening disease that has claimed 257 lives in Lahore alone with 16,580 total number of reported cases since 2010. A viral disease that is transmitted by infected mosquitoes and can cause a spectrum of illnesses from mild fever to potentially fatal dengue shock syndrome (DSS). The most common symptoms include:
- High fever
- Muscle pain, joint pain, and pain around the eyes, ears, or neck area.
- Decrease in platelet count leading to bleeding
Diarrhoea (or dysentery) is a common problem during monsoon. The cause of diarrhoea can be bacteria, viruses, parasites, and other pathogens. It can also be caused by food poisoning, food allergies, and intolerance to certain foods or drinks, as well as food-borne diseases like Typhoid Fever. Poor hygiene is another reason for diarrhoea in children. It is an infectious disease that is characterised by watery or loose stools. Though the condition is under control and it isn’t that serious if it goes away in 2-3 days, at times it could be chronic, lasting for as long as 4 weeks, and then it is life-threatening and medication is required.
Gastroenteritis is also known as Stomach Flu and this is a viral infection that is very common during monsoon season In Pakistan. Gastro usually spreads when a person contacts an affected person or again through the consumption of contaminated food or water.
The common symptoms of gastro are nausea, diarrhoea, vomiting, high grade fever, cramps, etc.
Typhoid is a highly infectious monsoon-related disease. It is caused by the Salmonella typhi bacteria and if untreated it can be life-threatening and source of infection in community. Typhoid is really contagious and can be spread easily from person to person through the faecal-oral contamination routes. In Pakistan, the monsoon season is the ideal season for the growth and spread of typhoid bacteria. This disease is usually caused by flies contaminating food and water.
