the athletes to ignore warning signs of potential danger. Many push themselves beyond the limits that their fitness could take them.
It is, therefore, up to coaches, teachers and parents to observe any indications of potential danger.
Given the complexities of situation, it is vital that a thorough investigation be done as to the causes of the recent deaths of the students and teachers. If there is a definite pattern, then we must convene a panel of experts to study the findings and then take the appropriate action. Once we partake in strenuous physical activity there are risks, but the benefits outweigh the potential dangers.
However, we have to have a policy which is affordable and implementable. Having ambulances at every match is impossible, given the number of events and the shortage of these vehicles. Teaching basic cardiopulmonary resuscitation to as many people as possible may reduce the number of deaths.
It is impossible to predict where the next event will occur, but taking the necessary precautions and encouraging the population to exercise and being active will improve the health of the nation and reduce the number of sudden deaths.
