Fight Dengue

In support to the DOH’s fight against Dengue, Governor Dr. Melchor Daguines Diclas issued an advisory recommending all Aksyon Barangay Kontra Dengue (ABKD) in all municipalities in Benguet to be activated, and a mechanism to inform/remind the citizens in the locality of the 4’oclock habit (habitual search and destroy mosquito breeding sites) should be reinstated (e.g. use of siren, bell, horn etc.). As of June 7, 2021, Benguet has already recorded 242 cases with one death case as compared to 233 cases of the same period last year.
