Mosquito traps can minimize dengue cases in Ifugao

Dengue surveillance - Philippines 2012
Jul.31.2012//..With the initial distribution of mosquito traps by the Department of Education Division Office in all elementary and secondary schools, dengue cases are hoped to be minimized if not eradicated in the whole province. Ovicidal/lorvicidal (OL) mosquito traps were distributed in response to the increasing number of dengue-infected patients. Ifugao recorded the highest number of dengue cases in the region last year, Provincial Health Officer Dr. Mary Jo Dulawan said. She further encouraged everyone to be vigilant and destroy mosquito breeding places. The participation of all citizens is indeed the key factor in solving provincewide diseases such as dengue. #jbnii
