Gov Marcos orders emergency purchase of dengue kits
Ilocos Norte Governor Imee Marcos said the provincial government will purchase additional dengue kits to address the rise in dengue cases in the province.
The Ilocos Norte health officials earlier recommended the emergency measure after recording 437 dengue cases with five deaths in Dingras, Solsona, Badoc, and Laoag.
Dingras already declared a state of calamity due to the rise of dengue cases.
The Dingras District Hospital alone has 45 dengue cases.
One box of 25 dengue kits costs more than P25,000.
