The monsoon season is here in all its glory and throughout the country, people are experiencing the wrath of the heavy rains, as we have seen in the news lately, right?
Well, while the rainy season is great when we are all curled up indoors, the minute we step outside, it is a whole different story!
Flooding in the streets, traffic jams, trees getting uprooted, the drains getting clogged, stagnant water around home, offices and schools, sewage water overflowing into the streets, etc., can make life extremely difficult for the people, until the heavy rains pass.
So, although the monsoons are considered to be "cozy and romantic", the reality of the situation can be rather disappointing, especially in some countries, with pre-existing public infrastructure issues.
When the drainage systems in the streets are not well-planned it leads to the rain water getting stagnated, leading to a number of health issues among the citizens.
Also, during the rainy season, there is a lot of moisture in the air and the temperature could drop down to a considerable extent.
This sudden change in the weather can also cause health problems among people.
When there is stagnant water around, it could become a breeding ground of mosquitoes and so, diseases like malaria and dengue are prevalent during the rainy season.
In addition, the sudden shift in weather can also cause flu symptoms such as fever, cold, cough, headaches, etc., in a lot of people.
