DOH reminds about cold weather diseases
by PIO release

Health authorities advised the public to prepare for the expected resurgence of cold weather illnesses.

Department of Health-Cordillera Director Lakshmi Legaspi said with the expected continuous drop in temperature in Baguio and Benguet since the start of the year, residents and visitors must protect themselves from respiratory illnesses, dengue, chikungunya, and zika, and food and water-borne illnesses.

The lowest temperature recorded in the city for this year is 13 degrees Celsius last Jan. 4, but the weather bureau predicts a continuous decline in the city’s temperature in the coming months with the enhanced northeast monsoon bringing the cold winter winds from mainland China to Northern Luzon.

City Health Services Officer Rowena Galpo reminded residents and visitors to keep themselves warm at all times.

Galpo said respiratory cases surge during the period because of the unpredictable weather.

Common respiratory illnesses are cough and colds, pneumonia, bronchitis, asthma.

The lowest temperature recorded in the city by the Pagasa was 6.3 degrees Celsius on Jan. 18, 1961, while the fifth lowest temperature in the city at 7.5 degrees Celsius was recorded on Jan. 15, 2009.

Galpo said the public must also brace for the expected increase in influenza-like illnesses that could result in dengue fever because dengue is now a year-round illness.

She appealed to the people to seek early medical attention once they contract any disease for proper diagnosis.
