Take care of your health as haze worsens

 

 

 

The worsening haze situation in Kuala Lumpur and certain regions of Malaysia does not show any signs of improvement.

In fact, the haze seems to be worsening from day to day.

Our doctors are increasingly concerned. In view of this, the Federation of Private Medical Practitioners’ Association of Malaysia would to advise members of the public on the following:

1. The continuing persistence of the haze at this level is a significant adverse health threat, especially to:

  1. Young children and elderly;
  2. Patients with chronic respiratory disorders. asthma and obstructive lung disease;
  3. Patients with compromise cardiac function; and
  4. Patients with allergic skin, eye and upper respiratory disorders.

2. Kindly see your doctor for review of your medications, especially if your symptoms seem to be worsening despite being on regular medications; and

3. Stay indoors, take additional fluid in daytime and avoid excessive exercise, sweating and outdoor activities

4. Your doctor will be happy to review your condition and recommend appropriate medical leave if needed, including for school children.
