Dengue mgmt up in hotspots
by Larry T. Lopez / PIA

TABUK CITY, Kalinga – Following the upsurge in dengue cases with one reported death in the province this year, the Provincial Health Office recently launched the Integrated Vector Management against mosquitoes in identified hot spot barangays.

PHO Dengue Prevention and Control Program coordinator Jose Pardito said the measure involves clearing of mosquito breeding sites, larval survey to identify presence of mosquito larvae in an area, and conduct of massive spraying of larvicide.

On top of this, eradication of adult mosquitoes through misting is up in Barangay Bulanao, an identified hot spot with 120 dengue cases, the highest in the city’s 484 cases from January to August.

Tabuk is the most endemic site in the province so the City Health Office (CHO) targets to conduct misting operation in at least 19 barangays where dengue cases were reportedly high.

Smith Dawaton of the CHO advised residents to clean their surroundings first before spraying. Otherwise, the measure will be useless. Health authorities are strictly implementing the “No clearing, no spraying” policy.

Dengue became a widely established disease throughout the tropics with the development of commercial shipping during the 18th century.

In the last 50 years, incidence of dengue fever has increased 30-fold. Rapid population growth, urbanization and increased international air travel have all been driving forces associated with the increase in people affected by dengue.
