by Aileen P. Refuerzo / PIO

Cases of dengue fever in Baguio increased by 61 percent with 474 recorded cases, four of whom died, from Jan. 1 to Sept. 9 compared with the 294 cases during the same period last year.

City Epidemiology and Surveillance Unit Head and Dengue Program Coordinator Donnabel Tubera said the first fatality was an 81-year-old man from East Modernsite barangay who died a day after he was admitted at Saint Louis University Hospital of the Sacred Heart last May.

Another fatality was a 62-year-old male from Manuel A. Roxas who passed away May 1, four days after his admission at the Baguio General Hospital and Medical Center.

The other two were a 54-year-old female from Holyghost Proper who perished on Aug. 2, after a day of hospitalization at the BGHMC and a nine-year-old boy from Irisan barangay who died Sept. 1 after 10 days of confinement, also at BGHMC.

The age of the patients ranges from 21 days to 88 years old. 

Based on the CESU report, clustering of cases was also noted in 17 barangays namely ABCR, Pinsao Proper, Loakan Proper, Camp 7, Honeymoon-Holyghost, Asin Road, Bakakeng Central, St. Joseph Village, Irisan, San Luis Village, Liwa-nag-Loakan, Holy-ghost Ext., Middle Rock Quarry, Aurora Hill Proper, Dontogan, Lopez Jaena, and Sto. Tomas Proper.

Tubera said the number of cases has started to decline based on previous data but remained menacing because of the deaths.

Mayor Benjamin Magalong and City Health Officer Rowena Galpo reminded the public to continuously observe the anti-dengue measures particularly those contained in the Anti-Dengue Ordinance of Baguio.

Health authorities also urged the observance of the Department of Health’s anti-dengue campaign,“Mag-4S Kontra Dengue (search and destroy breeding places, self-protection measures, seek early consultation, and support spraying to prevent impending diseases).”
