Official offers health tips for All Saints’ Day

/ 05:05 AM October 31, 2019

MANILA, Philippines — Health Secretary Francisco Duque III on Wednesday urged people visiting cemeteries on All Saints’ Day and All Souls’ Day to prepare their food properly and, if possible, not to bring along elderly relatives.

Proper food preparation prevents food poisoning, he said, while keeping the elderly and infants at home protects them from contracting diseases like the flu.
