BAGUIO CITY - With the rainy weather  being  experienced these days, the Department of Health (DOH) is reminding  the public anew to be vigilant against the dengue virus that could be contracted by anyone  especially the young children and the old ones.

According to DOH-CAR Anti-dengue program coordinator Dr. Alexei Marrero, though the number of dengue cases this year is lower than that of 2010, the public should not be complacent and  must remain vigilant as clustering of cases has been noted in some barangays all  in  the region.

DOH-CAR data shows that  from January to August 8  this year, there are  recorded 1,395 dengue cases in the region with eight death cases. The figure  indicates a decrease by about 54 percent compared  to the 3,047 cases recorded during the same period last year, however,  the number of death increased  as compared to the seven deaths recorded in 2010.

“The public should remain vigilant as we expect the number of dengue cases to rise in the coming months. Thus,  we have to  continue to implement environmental cleanliness and continue to search and destroy possible mosquito breeding grounds, as dengue can be fatal and can affect anyone”, Marrero said.

Marrero reiterated  to the public to continue with the 4S campaign which includes: Search and Destroy, Seek early treatment, Self-protection and Say no to indiscriminate fogging.

In addition, the DOH  has been distributing insecticide treated nets to public schools especially to dengue prone barangays. In partnership with the Department of Science and Technology (DOST), it has also already started pilot-testing the Oviciadal-Larvicidal (OL) Trap project in some areas all over the country.

Meantime, Health Secretary Enrique Ona, in an earlier statement  called  on the local government units (LGUs), community leaders and the public to continue organizing clean-up drives  in their respective areas to ensure that possible dengue mosquito breeding sites are destroyed.

“We have succeeded in bringing down the cases of dengue but we must avoid complacency. Instead our gains should encourage us to keep up the good work”, Ona said.

At the national level, from January to July 23 this year, dengue cases already reached 38,876 cases with 226 deaths reported. Though the number of cases  is  about 25.85 percent lesser compared to the 52,428 cases recorded during the same period in 2010, dengue outbreak, as well as clustering of cases has been recorded in various parts of the country. *(JDP/LD-PIA CAR)
