DOH: Watch out for A(H1N1) but don't forget dengue

by Lyndon Plantilla

Manila (3 June) -- Despite the noise created by A (H1N1), schools should never forget the dangers poised by water-borne diseases, the Department of Health warned Monday.

Health Secretary Francisco T. Duque cautioned school officials to be vigilant against the so-called WILD diseases during the rainy season.

These diseases include Water-borne diseases, Influenza, Leptospirosis and Dengue (WILD), all of which cause more deaths and diseases than A (H1N1).

"WILD diseases have been around longer than A (H1N1) and affects young children particularly during this time of year. Actually, proper hand washing and good respiratory manner will protect our children not only from H1N1 but also for most of these diseases," Duque stressed.

DOH is intensifying its campaign against dengue in anticipation of the increasing number of cases from June until the end of the year.

This campaign advocates the Four-S strategy against dengue: Search and destroy mosquito breeding sites, Self-protection, Seek early consultation and Saying Yes to fogging only during outbreaks. (PIA) [top]
