MANILA, Philippines —The Public Attorneys Office on Thursday reported another Dengvaxia-related death.

Findings by the forensics team showed that the child experienced multi-organ enlargement and bleeding.

“Humingi ng tulong ang mga magulang, mga kaanak sa PAO at sa PAO forensic team para ma-examine ang mga labi ng biktima. Ngayong araw na ito ay nagconduct ng examination ang PAO forensic team,” Erfe said in an interview.

Erfe said the boy, who died on Wednesday, experienced difficulty in breathing.

The mother of the child said the boy tested negative for the coronavirus so he could not have died of COVID-19.
