Quezon City Council approves anti-dengue resolutions
The Quezon City Council has passed several resolutions spelling out measures to fight the spread of dengue.
City Resolution 7901-2019 authored by Councilor Peachy De Leon urged the City Health Department to conduct a simultaneous clean-up drive and anti-dengue fumigation in five adjacent barangays on a quarterly basis.
City Resolution 7902-2019 authored by Councilor Ramon Medalla meanwhile urged barangays to use their calamity fund to bankroll information campaigns.
“The city should not wait for the declaration of the state of calamity due to the dengue outbreak, we should act as one and use every resource at hand like the calamity quick response funds to be used in destroying the habitat of mosquitoes,” the resolution reads.
Lastly, City Resolution 7903-2019 introduced by Councilors Eden Delilah Medina, Diorella Maria Sotto-Antonio, and Irene Belmonte requires schools to allow students to wear long-sleeved shirts and jogging pants or long pants while attending school.
The resolution believes that having the students wear these kinds of clothing will provide protection from dengue-carrying mosquitoes.
