Dengue takes 5 Victims in Bataan, Rizal and Marikina

Dengue has claimed five more victims in Bataan, Rizal and Marikina City as of Thursday. //

A six-year-old child from Valenzuela City and a four-and-a-half child from Balanga, Bataan were among its victims According to Dr. Ricardo Lustre, administrator of the Amang Rodriguez Medical Center the Valenzuela child was at “critical stage 4,” and died 10 hours after being taken there for treatment Wednesday.

Lustre stated that he was informed that two dengue patients at the Rizal Medical Center had died since September 4, while two others were in critical condition.

At dawn Wednesday Angelica Sapa of Barangay Central, Balanga, died while being treated at the James Gordon Hospital in Olongapo City.

21 deaths were reported since September 7 from the number of dengue cases rising to 1,447.

16 dengue patients have been admitted to the Rizal Medical Center from Wednesday morning until 2 a.m. Thursday, a day after health authorities warned that the epidemic may last until October.

The majority of patients were from Pasig City, which has raised the number of dengue patients at the hospital to 70. Eric Tayag, head of the National Epidemiology Center, said parents should give children paracetamol instead of aspirin if they are suffering from fever adding that children should be taken to a doctor right away if they suspect of dengue symptoms.

According to Tayag the Department of Health is implementing its “4-S” program to counter the spread of the disease. He said, “The 4-S program includes search-and-destroy breeding sites, self-protection, seek consultation and say no to fogging, which is not effective. Health authorities led by Secretary Francisco Duque III will start going around hospitals today to inspect the dengue express lanes.”
