" TUGUEGARAO CITY : The Tuguegarao city council has declared a dengue outbreak here following an upsurge in dengue fever cases in the past two months.
The council members unanimously declared the dengue outbreak on September 1 as they expressed alarm over the 323 reported cases of dengue with one confirmed death from January to August 31 this year.
Dr. James Guzman, Tuguegarao City health officer, suggested to the council the declaration of a dengue outbreak to allow local officials to pool their resources for anti-dengue measures and to strengthen its information campaign against the disease.
City councilors resolved to reactivate the anti-dengue brigades in villages and to ask Mayor Delfin Ting to oblige local government workers to observe the four-o-clock habit and search-and-destroy operations.
Dengue brigades would be responsible in ensuring cleanliness at villages to prevent dengue fever, a flu-like illness spread by Aedes aegypti-infected mosquitoes.
Latest reports said that Cagayan Valley Region has reported at least 787 dengue fever cases with eight dengue fever-confirmed deaths from January to August this year."
