“The patients were six males and five females from three years old, being the youngest, and 31 years old as the oldest,” Samar said.

He said the city health personnel and the barangay dengue brigade are making rounds to inspect the environment and reminding the residents to remove and dispose used tires, cans and bottles that can hold stagnant water that might become mosquito breeding sites.
