4-S campaign urged vs dengue

Iloilo City (24 May) -- It is still the 4-S campaign against Dengue that the Department of Health promotes as cases increases with the onset of the rainy season.

But it is not just for the rainy season that has not even begun that DOH reminds the public of prevention, as the Regional Epidemiological Surveillance Unit Report said the number of cases has reached 1,309 from January to May 8.

The 4-S campaign promotes: Searching and destroying possible breeding grounds of dengue-carrying mosquitoes, wearing of long sleeved-shirts and long pants for protection; seeking health professionals for a fever that lasts two days or more ; and, saying no to indiscriminate fogging.

DOH-CHD 6 Director Ariel Valencia said this campaign should be the battle cry of everybody that should generate the participation of government agencies, community action and involvement and commitment of private sectors as well.

Valencia said this is a regional campaign as the DOH has also noted the rise of cases in Iloilo province with 231 cases, two deaths, while Iloilo City has 126, Negros Occidental has 280 with two deaths, Bacolod City with 266, Capiz, 194, Aklan, 29 with one death, Antique, 12, and Guimaras, 16.
