IN the aftermath of Tropical Cyclone Evan, the Health Ministry has not recorded a disease outbreak in the Northern Division.
The ministry has also commended the efforts of the people for their pro-activeness and adherence to health tips.
Northern medical officer Doctor Pablo Romakin said they had received a few cases of diarrhoea at Labasa Hospital after the cyclone. "We only received a few cases of diarrhoea apart from typhoid and other water-borne diseases," Dr Romakin said.
"This is really a positive result because we mostly receive a lot of disease cases after cyclones.
"Such results show people are taking heed of our advice and responding effectively."
Dr Romakin said they would continue to reach out to the community to increase awareness of healthy living.
"People are now prioritising their lives and following basic health tips such as washing of hands, boil drinking water and eating healthy fruits and vegetables.
"We want people to maintain this good result."
