We have seen street food vendors absolutely neglecting the basic cleanliness while making foods and serving them to the customers. This can lead to so many physical diseases and ailments. In the monsoon season, the risk increases to a higher extent. Dr. Srinivas Rao asked the pani puri sellers to follow hygiene while preparing and serving food to the crowds.

Avoid Unhygienic Foods!

When the vendors do not focus on checking the hygiene, the customers simply gulp up the unsanitary pani puri and other street foods. This contaminated situation can lead to typhoid fever and no one really wants to fall sick now and get trapped inside their rooms. Many people do not think twice before eating from a roadside food stall and often they fall sick. With the rainy season, the risk of falling sick increases, and it is quite harmful too.
