Doctor in the House: Why Are Infectious Childhood Diseases on the Rise?

Dr George Lee returns to discuss the latest medical news. Expect deep insights delivered with generous humour. With news this week that at least one child has died from hand, foot and mouth disease, we have gone from worried to alarmed. A number of other infectious childhood diseases are also on the rise, including measles, influenza and even Japanese encephalitis in Sarawak, although dengue cases have declined. There’s also been a rise in global tuberculosis cases. Datuk Dr Christopher Lee, Head and Senior Consultant Physician of Infectious Diseases, Hospital Sungai Buloh, joins Dr George Lee to discuss what precautions we can take to protect our children.
