Negros Occidental raises alert vs dengue

Negros Occidental (31 May) -- Provincial Health Officer Dr. Luisa Efren in an interview over a local radio here said that the Provincial Health Office issued alert level in the province on dengue to prepare for its peak season come July and August.

From January to May this year, the province has recorded 437 cases or a 254 percent increase as compared to the same period last year where there are only 172 cases recorded.

Efren said that the increase can be attributed to several factors including the early detection of mothers where after 2-3 days of fever, children are immediately taken to physicians for consultation. Another factor mentioned by Efren in the same interview is the breeding ground of these dengue-carrying mosquitoes left undestroyed.

PHO staff are deployed to the different areas in the province especially those which have noted increase in cases to campaign against dengue.

The PHO is also giving emphasis on schools since classes are to begin soon.

Efren reiterated the health official's advice to empty water that are stored in empty tires, cans, pots and even vases as these are breeding places of mosquitoes especially those that can pose great risk of carrying dengue. (PIA/EAD) [top]
