San Carlos City lifts its state of health emergency

Since the number of active diarrheal illnesses declined in the northern Negros area, the City of San Carlos in the Negros Occidental province withdrew its state of a health emergency.

With an alarming rise in local amoebiasis cases, Mayor Renato Gustilo proclaimed a state of health emergency on February 22.

The declaration was lifted by Gustilo’s Executive Order 96, which was made public by the municipal government on Tuesday afternoon.

The state of emergency in San Carlos City must be lifted, the mayor declared because the number of amoebiasis patients has already decreased during the past few days.

According to earlier data, there were 469 cases of acute gastroenteritis and amoebiasis between February 1 and March 1 in the country’s 18 barangays.

In comparison to the 52 active cases on March 1, the day teams from the regional and national offices of the Department of Health (DOH) came to the city to conduct an investigation, there were only 24 active diarrheal cases at the San Carlos City Hospital on March 7.

The DOH Epidemiology Bureau confirmed an outbreak of diarrhea in the city in a report.

Out of 25 sampling spots, the results of the water analysis revealed that 18 were positive for coliform and six were positive for E. Coli bacteria.

Diarrhea, nausea, vomiting, fever, headache, and bodily malaise are symptoms of food- and water-borne illnesses such as cholera, typhoid fever, and amoebiasis.
A sickness is contracted by consuming food or water that has been tainted with disease-causing bacteria.
