Heard on Inquirer Radio 990AM: DOH spokesman on sore eye prevention
“Hygiene is very important. We should always wash our hands. A person with sore eyes passes the virus on whenever he touches an object and another person handles it. Since this disease involves the eyes, we should not self-medicate. We should consult a professional. This disease is very common during summer but it doesn’t mean that it occurs only during this time.”—Department of Health spokesman Lyndon Lee Suy on the increasing number of sore eyes cases
