Quezon City, Philippines - In response to the ongoing rise in dengue cases in the city, the Quezon City Epidemiology and Disease Surveillance in District 6 conducted a dengue case investigation in several barangays. The objective of this investigation is to identify potential dengue hotspots and individuals exhibiting symptoms of the disease.

The investigation took place on September 4, 2023, as the city experienced continuous rainfall and flooding in recent days. The areas covered by the investigation included GK Sto. Nino in Barangay Talipapa, Campo Dos, Roque 1 Extension in Barangay Pasong Tamo, and Don Salvador in Barangay Baesa.

The primary goal of this case investigation is to pinpoint possible sources of dengue transmission and identify individuals displaying dengue symptoms. This information is crucial in raising awareness among residents in these areas and preventing a resurgence of dengue cases.


The Quezon City Epidemiology and Disease Surveillance Unit (QCESU) encourages residents to stay updated and informed about dengue prevention measures. They can do so by liking and following the QCESU Facebook Page and reaching out to the QCESU Hotline for inquiries and assistance at the following numbers:

  • 8703-2759 / 8703-4398
  • 0999-229-0751 / 0908-639-8086 / 0931-095-7737

Dengue is a mosquito-borne disease that can be severe and, in some cases, life-threatening. By conducting case investigations and promptly identifying potential dengue outbreaks, local health authorities aim to protect the well-being of residents and reduce the incidence of this infectious disease.
