Anti-Dengue Campaign

The Olongapo City Government under the administration of Mayor James “Bong” Gordon, Jr. has intensified its year-round campaign against Dengue.

In the flag ceremony of city officials and employees on Monday, Mayor Bong Gordon urged every Olongapeño to cooperate with the city government’s campaign against Dengue by keeping a clean environment.

“Magtulungan tayo upang mapanatiling malinis ang ating kapaligiran nang sa gayon ay makaiwas tayo sa sakit na Dengue,” Mayor Gordon said.

Through City Health Officer Dr. Arnildo Tamayo, the city government is pushing for the implementation of the “4S” or the four ways to stay away from the dangers brought about by the Dengue disease.

The 4S include (1)Search and Destroy all Breeding Sites through regular cleaning of places where mosquitoes hatch eggs such as tires, bottles, flower vases, etc.; (2)Self-Protection through the use of mosquito nets and repellants; (3)Seek early treatment or medical attention immediately if fever persists for two days; and (4)Say “No” to indiscriminate fogging or defogging and ensure it is done only at appropriate times (1-2 hours after sunrise or 1-2 hours after sunset).

“Kung araw-araw nating lilinisin ang ating kapaligiran, mawawala ang mga lamok na sanhi ng Dengue. Kung walang lamok, walang Dengue,” Dr. Tamayo said.

Meanwhile, to achieve a Dengue-free environment, here are some “Puksain ang kitikiti, Sugpuin ang Dengue” tips from the Department of Health and City Health Office:
1. Butasan o biyakin ang mga lumang gulong upang hindi pag-ipunan ng tubig at pangitlugan ng lamok.
2. Takpan ang mga drum, timba at iba pang ipunan ng tubig upang hindi pamahayan ng kitikiti.
3. Palitan ang tubig ng plorera o flower vase minsan isang linggo.
4. Linisin at alisin ang tubig sa paminggalan.
5. Linisin ang alulod ng bahay upang hindi maipunan ng tubig at pamahayan ng kitikiti.
6. Alisin ang iba pang bagay na maaaring pag-ipunan ng tubig at pangitlugan ng lamok tulad ng lata, bote, at tansan.
