Dr. Rosemarie Lamirez, DOH-6 medicalcoordinator, said the DOH-CHD continues to provide all provinces with supplyand logistics for the prevention of dengue. Dr. Jessie Glenn Alonsabe, head of theRegional Epidemiology and Surveillance Unit, meanwhile, said the region stillcould not lift the dengue outbreak status. Attack rate refers to the proportion ofpeople who contracted the disease vis-a-vis the total population of an area. Noting that the rainy season cancontribute to the spread of the disease, Lamirez reminded not only the peopleof Guimaras, but the entire Western Visayas to “remain vigilant.” The province posted 53 new cases for the36th morbidity week, bringing the total to 1,977 dengue cases with fourdeaths. Cabano village in San Lorenzo town andPoblacion village in Jordan town, all in Guimaras, were also included in thetop 20 villages with clustering of cases in Western Visayas.
