Kiharusi (Stroke)

Hili ni tangazo la idara ya huduma za afya ktk vyombo vya habari Uingereza.

When STROKE strikes, it spreads like fire.

When STROKE strikes act F.A.S.T:

1. Face -has their face fallen one side? Can they smile?
2. Arms -can they raise both arms and keep them there?
3. Speech -is their speech slurred?
4. Time -Just like fire, it's time to call 999 if you see any single one of these signs. (for Tanzania: send the patient to hospital immediately)

The earlier you act the more of a person you save.
