Con­junc­tivi­tis

Con­junc­tivi­tis is a bac­te­rial or vi­ral af­fec­tion on the in­ner eye­lid which causes blood ves­sels to be­come in­flamed re­sult­ing in eyes ap­pear­ing red­dish or pink. It has been around for some time now and is spread­ing like wild fire among Fi­jians be­cause we tend to so­cialise a lot.

Every­one is af­fected - chil­dren, teens and adults; and looks un­stop­pable once it starts. Peo­ple, the way to pre­vent this con­ta­gious dis­ease from spread­ing is to stop vis­it­ing friends or rel­a­tives for the time be­ing un­til it is safe to do so.
