Dengue, in fact, one of the top 10 killer diseases in the Philippines. From January 1 to May 20 this year, the Department of Health recorded 35,973 dengue cases throughout the country, with 207 reported deaths within the same period. And while the latest figures are lower compared to last year’s, people must remain vigilant in terms of averting an outbreak of the disease in their communities.
