Dengue Everywhere?

This heartbreaking scenario can happen to anyone.

Almost every day, news reports stressed about dengue fever fatalities and other victims. The widespread dengue virus continues to threaten people in all ages in the country.

Before, studies said Stegomyia aegypti (formerly Aedes aegypti) mosquito attacks only on day time. But now it also bite victims at any time of the day. And this is much more serious. Anti-dengue vaccine is still under study.

Does everybody really understands the symptoms of dengue fever? Is the government campaigns enough or its just because of poverty that some victims hesitated to seek doctor’s help?

Consultations and other services in any state hospitals should be free of charge. But are the facilities adequate or the physicians are competent to save the victims? Have you seen the five patients in one bed being treated in a local hospital?

If the current administration is alarmed by the epidemic, what else did they do to eradicate it?

Sometimes complacency kills. Now that it’s rainy season in the Philippines, we should do our share to keep up the good word in combating dengue. Move and don’t wait to be the next victim.

Should you be seeking medical help, make sure your clinical assistant has excellent patient care and technician certification as be qualified to know the signs.
