BY JUDY F. PARTLOW

The number of dengue cases reported in Negros Oriental since January this year has risen by 32.6 percent over last year’s figures for the same period, the Department of Health office in the province said.

Dr. Socrates Villamor, provincial DOH team leader, said the latest report on July 8 showed that 574 dengue patients have been admitted to the three tertiary care hospitals in Dumaguete City.

In the same period last year, the DOH recorded only 436 cases.

The Department of Health in Negros Oriental has confirmed that three more cases of the novel influenza A(H1N1) in the province tested positive of the virus.

However, all three patients have fully-recovered from the symptoms, the DOH provincial office said.

DOH provincial team leader, Dr. Socrates Villamor, said his office received Monday afternoon laboratory test results of the three cases from the Regional Institute of Tropical Medicine in Metro Manila.

Child rights drive mulled
BY RENE GENOVE

The Negros Oriental Child Advocacy Network has intensified its child protection program to help more than 5,000 children-beneficiaries in the province.

ONCAN consultant Kith Barrett of the Australian Business Volunteers said that, in collaboration with the local media, the campaign to protect children’s rights and other advocacy issues will have a great impact in raising community awareness.

Children who are roaming the streets, are abused, orphans, juvenile delinquents, displaced, or disabled, and those representing cultural minorities from the 25 ONCAN non-government organization members have the right to be heard and to voice their opinions, Barrett said.
