Increased mobility is one of the causes seen to have contributed to higher dengue cases this year compared to 2021, a health official said in a report by Philippine News Agency.

In a Viber message to reporters, Health Undersecretary Maria Rosario Vergeire said there were low cases of dengue in the past two years of the pandemic because there was less mobility of the population.

“Less interaction among people, schools were closed, so as with other establishments,” she said. “People were at home most of the time, and this contributed to lesser infections”.
