Rally against dengue set in Bacolod City

Bacolod City (6 September) -- Dengue mosquitoes may be small and apolitical, but this does not stop the City Health Office (CHO) from spearheading a rally against them on September 11.

The city, this year, has been besieged by dengue cases now running to 1,699 with 12 deaths recorded from January to August. The figure is a sharp contrast to last year's cases of only 610 with five recorded deaths.

In a move to raise the citizens' awareness on the dreaded dengue mosquitoes, the CHO will lead the activity starting from a march from the three points of the city- Lagoon, Lupit Church and the City Health Office (CHO) converging at the Bays Center where a program will be held.

In different schools and barangays slogan-making contests will be conducted.

Bacolod City Mayor Evelio Leonardia has raised concern over the growing number of deaths and victims this year and ordered the CHO to immediately take steps to address the menace.

Joining the CHO in the activity are the Philippine National Police, Barangay Health Workers and the Department of Social Service and Development. (PIA-LOL) [top]
