De Venecia's Anti Dengue Drive
De Venecia’s anti-dengue drive, in full swing - The Operation: Iwas Dengue is currently being conducted by the office of Rep. Gina de Venecia to prevent the possibility of a dengue outbreak in Pangasinan's 4th Distrtict. The misting operation against the killer mosquitoes started last Sept. 19 in Dagupan City and Mangaldan. Thus far, the operation has covered barangays Bacayao Sur, Bacayao Norte, Bonuan Boquig, Herrero-Perez, Mayombo, Caranglaan, and Tebeng, all in Dagupan City, and barangays Maasin and Amansabina in Mangaldan.. De Venecia believes that preventive action is still the best way to combat killer diseases like dengue, that’s why even before the spate of the killer mosquitoes, she already launched the anti-dengue drive. She said that the misting operations will continue until all the 140 barangays in the fourth district have been covered. It is recalled that the same strategy was employed by De Venecia, when she distributed anti-leptospirosis capsules to offset the prevalence of leptospirosis in the flooded barangays in Dagupan City. Over-all health care is one of the four pillars of Rep. De Venecia’s governance. The other three are: Livelihood, Values Formation, and Education & Environment.
