THERE is a reported increase in admitted cases in Gizo following the recent bad weather.

Western Province Medical Health Director Dr Dickson Boara encourages mothers to take extra care of their children as the Gizo hospital sees an increase in admitted patients with fever and body ache.

This surge is being blamed as an aftermath of the recent bad weather.

Boara said, “We must look after all our children from sickness that mainly affects our children under five years old and this age group did not know what they are doing so parents you’re responsible.

“It’s an entire responsibility for parents must take extra care for our children and teach them with proper hygiene practices at homes and schools.”

He said if parents see symptoms such as dizziness, vomiting, along with the fever and body aches, then they must immediately bring their children to the hospital.
