The arrival of the monsoon provides much-needed relief from the sweltering heat, but it also increases the danger of infection from mosquitoes, water, air, and even contaminated food. Every year, during this season, the number of instances of dengue fever, malaria, gastroenteritis, and other respiratory infections rises, increasing people's health costs. 

Numerous infectious diseases may be spread due to the humid climate and severe rainfall. During rainy days, one's immune system suffers, which can lead to a variety of water-borne ailments. This means that people should not only wear long-sleeved shirts and long pants to avoid mosquito bites, but they should also think twice before consuming outside access to food.

To stay healthy during the season, eat nutritious foods to prevent colds and flu, drink boiling or filtered water, maintain good general cleanliness, and use mosquito repellents, among other things.
