    National alert in Philippines as dengue victim count soars
    Authorities in the Philippines say dengue cases have risen by more than 80% since last year. Early detection of the disease can dramatically reduce fatality rates, but there is no fixed treatment for the illness.
    ...
    A total of 456 people have died of dengue in the Philippines in the first half of this year, which was a 39% increase on the same period last year. It is the first time the authorities have called a national alert because of dengue.

    Duque said the health department had issued a "code blue" in response to the huge increase.

    DOH declares dengue outbreak in Western Visayas
    By Perla Lena July 15, 2019, 7:54 pm

    ILOILO CITY – The Department of Health-Center for Health Development in Region 6 (DOH-CHD 6) with the concurrence of Health Secretary Francisco T. Duque III, on Monday declared a dengue outbreak in Western Visayas, except for Negros Occidental, which will be placed on alert status.

    In a video conference at the DOH-CHD 6 office here, the agency's head, Regional Director Marlyn Convocar, received a go signal from Duque after he was apprised of the region’s dengue situation.

    DOH data showed that Iloilo, Capiz, Aklan, and Guimaras already declared an outbreak while Antique has expanded the scope of the declaration of its state of calamity to ill-effects of dengue from just the El Niño phenomenon.

    In giving his approval, Duque also commended DOH-6 and local officials for their three timely interventions that include the declaration of the epidemic, management of cases in hospitals and for rural health units to serve as hydration centers or stations.

    DOH regional data showed that from January to July 6, 2019, Western Visayas had 15,746 cases and 87 deaths. The average increase was computed at 236 percent when compared with 4,684 and 40 deaths for the same period last year.

    Among four provinces in Western Visayas, Guimaras recorded the highest increase at 1,030 percent while the highest case fatality rate (CFR) is in Aklan, Negros Occidental and Bacolod City at 0.7 percent. CFR is computed as total number of death over the total number of cases.

    National data covering the January 1 to June 29, 2019 period showed Western Visayas as having the most number of cases among 17 regions with 13, 164 cases and 60 deaths; followed by Region 4–A with 11,474 and 46 deaths; Region 7 with 9,199 cases and 60 deaths and Region 12 with 9,107 cases and 41 deaths...
