Doctors say that cases of viral flu and bacterial infections related to stomach have increased recently in the last couple of days.

Dr Archit Pande, a paediatrician from Pune, said, “The cases of viral and bacterial infection have increased in the city in the last couple of days. Children could not attend schools. Post heavy showers there is a change in the weather as well. Also, water sources become polluted with bacteria. All these things lead to a rise in the number of viral and flu-related cases.”

Many human infections are caused by either bacteria or viruses. Bacteria are tiny single-celled organisms, thought by some researchers to be related to plants. They are among the most successful life forms on the planet, and range in habitat from ice slopes to deserts.

Bacteria can be beneficial – for instance, gut bacteria help us to digest food – but some are responsible for a range of infections. These disease-causing varieties are called pathogenic bacteria.

Many bacterial infections can be treated successfully with appropriate antibiotics, although antibiotic-resistant strains are beginning to emerge. Immunisation is available to prevent many important bacterial diseases.

Dr Smita Patil, a physician from Pune, said, “Flu cases have increased. People are advised to take rest and eat healthy food. Also, drinking water sources should be purified. Take good sleep. This post heavy monsoon period many times causes a rise in viral and bacterial infections. Dengue cases have also seen a rise.”
