THE Mandaue City Health Office conducted another misting operation at the Cebu International Convention Center (CICC) where fire victims of barangays Guizo and Mantuyong are temporarily staying.

The misting was done for the five camps Wednesday morning.

The previous misting was done last Thursday only at Camps 1 and 2. Fire victims were divided into five camps and assigned camp leaders.

Mandaue City Health Officer Dr. Edna Seno said the misting came after a two-year old fire victim was rushed to the Vicente Sotto Memorial Medical Center (VSMMC) last August 15, Monday for contracting dengue hay-fever.

She said based on their records from January to July this year, they recorded 117 dengue cases all over Mandaue City with four deaths. The number is higher from last year’s 57 cases for the same period.

Aside from spraying they also distributed flyers to the fire victims that contained information on the signs and symptoms of dengue and how to prevent contracting the disease.
