How do you feel about this story?


The City Health Office (CHO) conducted a search and destroy strategy and larvicide application Saturday in Barangay Putik here due to the increasing dengue fever cases in the village.

Dr. Cathy Garcia, assistant city health officer, said in a statement Barangay Putik is one of the villages with high cases of dengue in the city.

However, Garcia did not say how many dengue cases the village has except that the CHO has recorded a total of 123 dengue fever cases in different barangays with two deaths since January this year.

She reminded the public to practice the “4S” campaign against dengue– search and destroy mosquito breeding places; self-protection measures; seek early consultation; and, say no to indiscriminate fogging.

Dengue is transmitted through a bite of Aedes aegypti and Aedes albopictus mosquitoes, which both can lay eggs in any space or container that holds clear and stagnant water like a bottle cap, dish dryer, among others.

Garcia advised the parents to immediately seek medical consultation once their children manifest symptoms of dengue to avoid further complications. (PNA)
