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]
