HFMD outbreak in Singapore is much concern to all of us, parents and preschooler care-givers island wide.
Stepped up hygiene standards and checks on the young charges will not solve the present HFMD outbreak. My suggestion, based on human body physiology study, is to remind and monitor the children's daily water intake. Daily amount to be calculated using each child's body weight.

1.Every 1 kilogram of body weight needs at least 31.42 of water. Example, if your child weighs 30 kilogram now, then 942.62 ml of water is needed per day. Round it up to 950 ml for easy monitor purpose.

2.Spread this daily amount into ten equals portions, 95 ml each portion.

3.Drink each portion at the interval of 90 minutes.

4.Do use a pinch of sea salt for the water drank. For every 1250 ml (of water) drank, you can use 1/4 teaspoon of sea salt.

To all parents, pre-schoolers care-givers and young students, I say, do not fear, just remember to drink sufficient water everyday. i am not advocating "drink lots of water" general statement. But, I am specific about the amount, please follow the calculation given above.

I have wrote to the press, but the health correspondent says this is not from the "expert says". You can try and see the result yourself and decide for prevent the outbreak among us.
I have dedicate my blog to bring this dehydration diseases to the public worldwide at my "Healthy Wealth" weblogsite

Well done is always better than well said. To the experts supposedly, beside the comments, please provide positive results among us.
Sincerely yours,
Mr.Soong See Choo

Active citizenry to maintain law and order and public safety and security

It is never too late or too early to revise and be wise again for the rest of our journey.......

Use Water-cure. Rather be thankful for the timely warning, and do something about it.

Drink at least 10% of your own daily water-quota (31.42 ml multiply by your present body weight(kg), every 90 minutes. Use 1/4 teaspoon of sea-salt in your daily diet, for every 1250 ml water drank.

Pain is a sign/signal produced by dehydration in the human body. Pain may be common but it is not normal.

To simplify complications is the FIRST essential of success.
