Conjunctivitis is characterised by the inflammation of the conjunctiva, the thin, protective membrane covering the white part of the eyeball. It can be triggered by viral or bacterial infections, and in some cases, it may also be caused by allergies. The infection spreads through direct contact with infected respiratory droplets, contaminated surfaces, or eye secretions of affected individuals. The heavy rainfall and increased atmospheric moisture have further exacerbated the incidence of conjunctivitis and eye flu.

•Protect yourself and others from pink eye
-Wash your hands often with soap and water, and help young children do the same.
-Avoid touching or rubbing your eyes.
-Avoid sharing personal items, such as makeup, eye drops, towels.
-Do not use the same eye products for your infected and non-infected eyes.
– Stop wearing contact lenses until your eye doctor says it’s okay.

Together, we can combat this eye infection and strive for a healthier, safer community❤️
