BAGUIO CITY: With the onset of the rainy season, the Department of Health-Cordillera Administrative Region (DOH-CAR) is reminding the public anew on dengue awareness and is advising people to do regular clean-up drive on possible mosquito breeding sites. DOH-CAR Medical Officer IV Dr. Alexei Marrero said that from January to June 13, 575 dengue cases recorded in the region including one death. Benguet recorded the most cases with 135, followed by Abra with 125, Apayao – 83, Baguio City – 82, Kalinga – 61, Ifugao – 24 and Mountain Province with 11. There were also 54 non-CAR patients who underwent treatment in the region. Though lower by 17 percent compared to the 691 cases recorded during the same period last year, Marrero reiterated the call for a regular clean-up drive on possible mosquito breeding sites.
