Colder temperatures are being attributed to the increase in patients seeking treatment for respiratory symptoms associated with colds, flu and seasonal allergies. Island healthcare workers are reporting a higher influx of people – especially the young and the elderly – who are seeking treatment for a variety of infirmities generally attributed to January’s colder temperatures and breezy weather.

According to the Director of the General Hospital, most of the cases they are seeing are viral in nature, meaning rest and plenty of fluids is generally the best medicine. Additionally,  residents are urged to avoid self-medicating, since many over-the-counter medications can often mask a bacterial infection which should be treated under a physician’s care.

alergias estacionales a las temperaturas más bajas. Personal encargados de los cuidados para la salud han reportado una mayor afluencia de personas, particularmente menores y personas mayores, que buscan tratamiento para una variedad de dolencias que por lo general se atribuyen a las temperaturas más bajas durante Enero y clima con vientos frescos.

De acuerdo al director del Hospital General, la mayoría de los casos que atienden son virales, y par ello la mejor medicina es el descanso y muchos líquidos. Asimismo, se recomienda a los habitantes que eviten auto medicarse, puesto que con frecuencia la mayoría de los medicamentos de venta libre ocultan una infección bacteriana cuyo tratamiento debe seguirse bajo los cuidados de un médico.
