The best way to avoid this is to make sure that you only drink bottled water, avoid ice and ice-cream and anything that may have been washed in tap water (salad). All fruit should be peeled before consumption. Milk is unpasteruized and should be boiled. Precautions should also be taken against prickly heat and sunstroke”
