Following the declaration of state of calamity due to dengue outbreak last month, the Provincial Health Office (PHO) will conduct a province-wide simultaneous clean-up drive on Thursday.

PHO head Dr. Rene Catan said the activity will be participated by the different local government units and government agencies like the Department of Interior and Local Government and Bureau of Fire.

The Provincial Board placed the whole province under state of calamity after seeing an increase of dengue cases in Cebu.
