With the incidence of Influenza A (H1N1) virus infections in the Philippines, the Olongapo City Government has intensified its health campaign program, which includes the year-round campaign against Dengue H-Fever.

City Mayor James “Bong” Gordon, Jr. is urging the public to cooperate with the city government’s campaign against Dengue by consciously keeping their surroundings clean and free from stagnant water.

“Mosquitoes thrive in stagnant water and we should eliminate the source of these disease-carrying insects,” Gordon said.

The Department of Health (DOH) has provided a four-way formula that will help keep away the public from the said disease.

(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).

Meanwhile, here are tips also from DOH and the City Health Office:

 Butasan o biyakin ang mga lumang gulong upang hindi pag-ipunan ng tubig at pangitlugan ng lamok.
 Takpan ang mga drum, timba at iba pang ipunan ng tubig upang hindi pamahayan ng kitikiti.
 Palitan ang tubig ng plorera o flower vase minsan isang linggo.
 Linisin at alisin ang tubig sa paminggalan.
 Linisin ang alulod ng bahay upang hindi maipunan ng tubig at pamahayan ng kitikiti.
 Alisin ang iba pang bagay na maaaring pag-ipunan ng tubig at pangitlugan ng lamok tulad ng lata, bote, at tansan.
