Capiz Records Low Firecracker Injuries PDF Print E-mail
Provincial Health Officer Dr. Samuel Delfin disclosed that said injuries were due to piccolo, a kind of firecracker that is being banned by the Department of Health.

“We are happy to know that there is a decreasing number of firecracker injuries this year in the province despite the fast approaching New Year,” he said.

Delfin likewise said that they have already made a reminder to all the Rural Health Units in the 16 towns of Capiz to be on alert especially on New Year’s eve to immediately respond to cases of firecracker injuries.

He added that they have also coordinated with all the private hospitals as well as government and district hospitals in the province to be ready for said incidents.

Delfin also reminded the public of the danger of using firecrackers as the government has been campaigning against firecracker injuries especially on children.

In an online news, the DOH said that they have launched an all-out war against the sale of piccolo as latest Kampanya Kontra Paputok Surveillance revealed that 48% of the total 173 fireworks-related injuries were due to said firework.

Said news disclosed that as of December 28, the DOH recorded a total of 173 fireworks-related injuries of which 162 were due to fireworks, six from stray bullets, and five from fireworks ingestion. (PIA/Jemin B. Guillermo)
