4S Campaign Against Dengue Intensified PDF Print E-mail
PHO statistics revealed that since January until July this year, about five hundred thirty nine (539) were hospitalized and there are six (6) confirmed deaths because of dengue.
 
Joeffrey Espiritu, Health Education Promotion Officer I of PHO said that their office is taking all steps available to educate the people of this province about the disease. Barangay and municipal health workers are monitoring their areas for cases of dengue Fever so that the required medical attention will be given immediately.

Espiritu also said that their “4s” information dissemination campaign is on going. The 4s explain the means on how to avoid dengue fever.

First is Search and destroy the breeding places of the mosquitoes, known to be carrier of the said disease. Second is Self Protection which reminds the people to use mosquito nets and repellants, and other protection when they sleep. Third is Say no to indiscriminate fogging because it’s not a guaranteed method of repelling mosquitoes and it’s hazardous to the health. Lastly, Seek early consultation as soon as symptoms of the said disease appears.

“Vigilance is the key in order to avoid the deadly dengue fever, as soon as symptoms appears, I urged you to seek medical help immediately.” Espiritu added. (cppb)
