Metro Manila may face a dengue epidemic as the number of cases has surpassed the alert level threshold.

According to a report on GMA News TV's Balitanghali, the Department of Health (DOH) recorded 11,123 dengue cases in Metro Manila as of August 10.

The DOH said 856 of these cases were recorded in a single a week, most of them among children aged 5 to 9.

Out of all the barangays in the National Capital Region, the highest number of cases was recorded in Greater Fairview, Quezon City.

The DOH said 160 dengue cases were recorded at the barangay as of August 3 this year, with one dying.

The news team even saw a swarm of mosquitos in the area near a daycare center.

However, the Fairview Health Center said they were taking necessary steps to prevent the number from rising.

Been out fogging around here too.

Without wishing to jump on anyone's grave:

This has been very good news for us - we've finally got a road and drain!

It's not all finished yet but at least we have the road past the house now ... only 2 meters but enough to squeeze a multicab in and out.

 

The problem with the drains here is they're not really drains - most of the 'canals' are full of about a foot of water - usually covered - excellent for breeding mosquitoes - better than nothing I guess - and free.
