The rainy season generally sees an alarming increase in dengue and similar mosquito-borne diseases, posing a big threat to the health and wellbeing of Filipino families, especially children under the age of 9 and even those that are yet to be born.
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.
The same Aedes mosquitoes that carry dengue also transmit the Zika virus, a flu-like mosquito-borne disease that is widespread in tropical countries with big mosquito population. As of February this year, the DOH has tallied a total of 57 Zika cases in the country, seven of which involve pregnant women aged 16 to 32.
