“Dengue is closely monitored in the province all year round through the intervention efforts of PHO in coordination with all 14 government-run hospitals and local government units,” she said.

De Guzman said hospitals under the provincial government have fast lanes with readily available blood bags to accommodate dengue patients.

Patients in the emergency rooms manifesting dengue symptoms immediately undergo rapid test, she added.

“The mobile health caravan dubbed, ‘Kalusugan Karaban’ also banners the campaign against dengue of the provincial government. The provincial government also established a provincial blood network, which goes around the province weekly to conduct bloodletting activities in towns and cities of the province for blood supplies,” de Guzman said.
