Health authorities in Central Visayas declared a dengue outbreak in six villages in Cebu City Wednesday after noting a high incidence of the disease there. Radio dzBB's Cebu affiliate reported the six villages where the outbreaks were declared are Guadalupe, Labangon, Lahug, Tisa, Apas, and Talamban.

On the other hand, health authorities declared as dengue hot spots the villages of Banawa, Punta Princesa, Sambag II, and Tejero. DOH Central Visayas regional epidemiology surveillance unit nurse Rennan Cimafranca said at least 7,241 cases had been recorded in Cebu province from January to Sept. 18. These 7,241 cases included 52 deaths, the dzBB report said.

Health authorities have appealed to the public to take precautions against dengue, which they said is a killer disease. They urged the public to keep their surroundings clean and dry to prevent dengue-carrying mosquitoes from breeding.
