ST JOHN Ambulance Malaysia has contributed 52,000 water purification tablets to help typhoon victims in the Philippines get clean water supply
When dropped into water, the tablets would produce hypoclorous acid or dry chlorine.
This could kill bacteria and prevent waterborne diseases such as hepatitis, cholera, typhoid and dysentery, which were likely to break out after Ondoy (Ketsana) and Pepeng (Parma) typhoons, wreaked havoc in the Philippines last month and last Saturday respectively, affecting millions of people and killing hundreds.
