However there have been cases where the disease has been spread through chicken pox, meningitis and after a heavy downpour. Samples that had been initially collected by the Health Surveillance Secretariat were unsatisfactory. A team was dispatched to deal with the daily disinfection of the water. The government gave out ten thousand bottles of sodium hypochlorite to help in the efforts. Those living in shelters were strongly advised to use bottled water for cooking and drinking.

Doctor Cortes has written a journal about how to prevent osteoporosis. One in three women and one in five men are affected by osteoporosis. The disease, which causes bone loss, is hard to diagnose, as it has no symptoms of pain. Women are the most affected because as they get older, their estrogen production decreases. Factors that cause weakening of the bones are eating food that lack in calcium and vitamin D besides leading a sedentary lifestyle.
The only way to diagnose the disease is through regular routine tests for people between the ages of 30 and 40. Changes in the levels of vitamin D and calcium can be noted using a blood or urine test. If the diagnosis shows that a patient has osteoporosis, he or she should be advised to take calcium supplements, engage in physical exercise and spend more time in the sun in order to help the body produce vitamin D. Sergio adds that Smokers are required to drop the habit and change their diet by introducing healthier meal options.
