Davao del Sur officials are trying to find ways–even setting aside politics—to defeat an enemy that has killed two children in July alone is good news.
But the sad thing is dengue continues to sweep across the province, downing one child after another.
On Friday alone, Pedro Roa, a barangay chairman in Digos City, escorted 30 villagers to the city health office for examination after they manifested dengue fever symptoms.
Dr. Milagros Sunga, city health officer, said it was the largest number so far of suspected dengue patients from a single area in a day.
Results are usually known in two to three days from the onset of the fever.
