The Disease Control Department has urged people who decided to travel back to their hometowns during this long holiday to be cautious about possible health threats while on the road.

Deputy Director-General of the Disease Control Department Dr. Suwannachai Wattanayingcharoenchai said on Thursday that travelers who get on the road during the Buddhist Lent holiday period should not check only the health of their vehicles but also their own, while reminding them to avoid alcohol consumption while traveling.

In addition to drivers, Dr. Suwannachai also urged passengers on the back of pick-up trucks to wear long-sleeve shirts and trousers as well as hats, sunglasses and sunblock lotion with SPF 15 as a minimum.

Moreover, he suggested that all travelers bring along common medicines, such as painkillers and antihistamines for allergies, for instance.

The Deputy Director-General of the Disease Control Department also called on people with health problems to avoid being in crowded areas in order to prevent the spread of any diseases to others and to keep themselves safe from possible health threats, such as influenza and pneumonia.
