Marikina City Health Office Conducts City-wide Cleanup

Mayor Del de Guzman has ordered the City Health Office to conduct a clean-up effort to prevent further spreading of dengue. Popular breeding grounds of this mosquito-borne virus are stale waters from drum containers, gutters, canals and mud puddles, thrown away bottles & cans and other hiding places like unused tires are what the City Health Office will be looking for to clean up.

A couple of dengue-related cases have been reported in Barangay Concepcion Uno and Barangay Industrial Valley Complex. Because of this, Assistant City Health Officer, Dr. Honnielyn Fernando mentioned that these two barangays will be closely monitored in addition to the appointment of health personnel to supervise dengue monitoring for the other barangays.

The City Engineering Office is also helping out by continuing its operation “Walang Pusali sa Marikina” and “Operation Tambak” which both aim at filling open spaces and stale water areas with soil to prevent stagnant water.

  2. I'm glad they are doing this because dengue is rampant in that region.
