DOH declares national dengue epidemic

NDRRMC press briefing, live on ANC:
Re: DOH declares national dengue epidemic

Health Sec. Francisco Duque III:
-It is important that a national epidemic be declared in the area to identify where our localized response is needed, and to enable LGUs to use their quick response funds to address the epidemic situation.
-7 out of 17 regions have exceeded the epidemic thresholds of dengue in their regions for the past 3 consecutive weeks. These regions are Regions IV-A, MIMAROPA, V, VI, VIII, IX, and X. Other regions exceeded the alert level such as the Ilocos Region, Central Visayas, and BARMM.
-Starting today, the DOH together with the other government agencies, the LGUs, the schools, the offices and communities will conduct the “Sabayang 4 o’clock Habit Para Deng-Get-Out,” focusing on search and destroy of mosquito breeding sites.
-On preventive measures: Sabay-sabay tayong mag-search and destroy tuwing alas-kwatro ng hapon. I would like to urge the public to follow suit; wala tayong gamot, wala tayong bakuna. So taklagang ito lang ang bukod tanging pamamaraan ngayon na puwede nating gawin para maiwasan ang pagkalat ng dengue.
-This is going to be staggering, a record number; this is a compelling reason why we are declaring a national dengue epidemic.
DND Sec Delfin Lorenzana:
-I, as chairman of the NDRRMC issued a memorandum circular subject enjoining all member agencies to support the nationwide dengue epidemic response, the efforts of the DOH to eliminate this epidemic once and for all.
-It's not nationwide; there are areas na mas malaki ang tama. It's up to the provinces and cities to declare their own state of calamity.
DOST Sec. Fortunato dela Peña:
-On diagnostic kit: We will roll out the kit developed by researchers from UP Manila. The kit offers a simplified method of confirming the presence of dengue virus in a patient's blood, thus it can be used to detect dengue infections at the start of the fever.
-The target is for a total of 304 LGU hospitals to receive the diagnostic kits. We are sorry that it will still take time to produce more kits. [pia-ac/dp]

John 3:16-18 ESV
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son (Jesus Christ), that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him. Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only Son of God.
