Hepatitis A and E viruses, while unrelated to one another, are both transmitted via the faecal-oral route, most often through contaminated water and from person to person. Hepatitis A could also be transmitted via food contaminated by infected food-handlers, uncooked foods, or foods handled after cooking. Hepatitis A has also caused outbreaks transmitted through injecting or non-injecting drug use.

You can apply sunscreen with a more grounded SPF around 20 minutes prior to getting out in the sun. Likewise, ensure that the skin is saturated appropriately.
5- Chicken Pox: Perhaps the most destructive summer sickness in India is pox or chickenpox. This viral condition shows as little liquid-filled rankles everywhere on the body. This condition ordinarily influences young children; nonetheless, in some cases, grown-ups who are diabetic, have a debilitated resistant framework, have malignant growth or other such conditions may get infected as well. This infectious sickness spreads through air-borne particles that are spread when a tainted individual hacks or wheezes or if the parental figure comes in direct contact with the contaminated individual.
