Residents are urged to relentlessly follow the 4-S strategy against dengue which involves measures to search and destroy breeding sites, particularly stagnant waters; seek early consultation; self-protection; and say ‘yes’ to fogging in areas where cases are high.

Local officials also encouraged residents to report dengue cases to their barangay officials who will coordinate with the CHO for the implementation of further measures.
