Anak ng chikungunya! DOH urges public to practice 4S following outbreak in Cavite

Oct 2, 2016 @ 17:50

With 400 chikungunya cases reported in Indang, Cavite, Department of Health (DOH) spokesperson Dr. Eric Tayag on Sunday, October 2 urged the public to practice “4S” as part of efforts to prevent the spread of the mosquito-borne disease.

“4S” refers to “Search and destroy”, using “Self- protection measures” (mosquito nets, insect repellants, wearing long sleeves and pants, etc), “Seeking early consultation” and “Saying ‘no’ to indiscriminate fogging”.

“Yung lamok na nagdadala ng chikungunya ay ‘yun ding lamok na nagdadala ng dengue at zika kaya ang kampanya natin laban sa tatlo, iisa lang ‘4S’,” Tayag said.
