Dengue cases slow down after Zambo cleanup initiative

Zamboanga City (Sept. 3)--City Health Officer Rodel Agbulos recently reported a decline in the number of dengue fever cases following the massive clean up activities initiated by the city government at the height of the dengue rash.

The last week of July recorded 196 cases of dengue fever but the trend reduced to 93 a week after the citywide clean up drive was launched August 7. From August 19-25, the cases further reduced to 37 cases.

Agbulos said he is impressed by the effects of the clean up activity and hoped that local residents would continue the cleanliness and sanitation drive in the barangays.

Through the directive of Mayor Celso Lobregat, the City Health Office initiated the Alarma Contra Dengue, a citywide clean up drive aimed to remind the public of the benefits of a clean and healthy environment.

Dengue fever cases from June to July soared by 300 percent compared to the record during the same period last year, prompting health officials to renew dengue preventive measures.

"A sustained cleanliness drive will keep dengue and other diseases away", Agbulos emphasized.

The city health officer called for continued vigilance against dengue through constant cleanliness efforts in the homes, surroundings and the barangays.

The city health office and the local government unit need the support and cooperation of all sectors to minimize if not eradicate dengue cases in our city, Agbulos added. (PIA 9 -ZC/CIO) [top]
