Pangasinan Rep. Jose de Venecia and wife, Gina, are leading the fight against dengue in the province by conducting a mist-spraying operation in the whole 4th District of Pangasinan.

The mist-spraying will start this Monday, September 21 in Barangay Pantal, Dagupan City.

Aside from Pantal, De Venecia’s office has prioritized the misting of Barangays Mayombo,Gueset, Caranglaan and Lucao. The misting operation continues until the whole district is covered.

Ms. De Venecia said that they will use misting process instead of fogging operation to eradicate mosquitoes that carry the dengue virus. Mist-spraying is environment-friendly, and proven to be more effective than fogging.

She is urging the public to be more pro-active and to consult barangay health centers if they suspect that a family member has dengue. She also stressed the importance of maintaining a clean environment to prevent mosquitoes from breeding.

Dengue fever is an acute febrile viral disease characterized by sudden onset of fever for 3-5 days, myalgia, arthralgia, retro-orbital pain, anorexia, GI disturbances and rashes.

Minor bleeding phenomena such as petechiae, epistaxis and gum bleeding may also occur at any time during the febrile phase.

Dengue fever is endemic in the Philippines since 1966.
