If you are bitten by a snake, immediately move away from it. Snakes can bite several times and moving away from a snake is the safest thing to do. Do NOT attempt to capture or kill the snake. This places you at greater risk. When in hospital, doctors can determine what type of snake bit you provided you follow these below instructions.

It is essential to remain calm if bitten by a snake. Running around and any movement can promote the process of the venom affecting your system. Slow down your breathing and remain as still as possible. Only move when needed.
