THE Health Ministry has called for caution when it comes to water consumption, after a rash of diarrhoea cases were presented at the country's main hospital.

Ministry spokesman Iliesa Tora said the cases resulted from drinking dirty or contaminated water or lack of proper water supply causing unhealthy practices.

He advised consumers to focus on practising lessons on cleanliness. "This is a serious issue and one we would like to stress to people once again," Mr Tora said.

"Cleanliness will help in ensuring that people do not get sick, especially from water-borne diseases."

Mr Tora said parents and guardians of children who contract diarrhoea should seek medical help and advice early.

"That is very important for parents to do. They should seek medical assistance early as soon as they notice changes to their children's health," he said.

He also advised parents to keep sick children at home to prevent the spread of diarrhoea.

Mr Tora said the ministry was also monitoring other hospitals and centres to see if reports of diarrhoea surfaced elsewhere around the country.
