Don't get bitten and fight the bite...
There has been lots of rain and flooding across South Australia in the last few weeks. Not only is there initial damage to property and infrastructure, water left behind from flooding can also cause sickness and serious injury. It also increases the presence of mosquitos and the diseases they carry.
We all know that mosquitos can be a nuisance, but some can spread serious diseases when they bite.
The most common disease spread my mosquitos in South Australia is Ross River virus, followed by Barmah Forest virus.
There is currently no cure and no vaccine for these viruses, so the only way to protect yourself and your family is to avoid being bitten.
