The A, B, K, D (Action Baranggay Kontra Dengue)

Dengue on the rise 55,000 reported cases so far in 2015,This is higher than the 50,462 recorded cases during the same period in 2014. The Department of Health (DOH) has recorded 55,079 suspected dengue cases from January 1 to August 8, 2015 according to the news last week.

Dengue is a common viral infection spread by mosquitoes. I'm aware of this because when I heard this from the news that there's lots of patients from the area of Cavite to Bulacan are. The DOH (Department of Health) said  that the  province of Bulacan and Cavite were placed under a state of calamity due to the rising number of dengue cases.

We have a 4-yr old neighbor here who's affected by the dengue and his nose was bleeding. They rushed him to the hospital. So I am scared because if it's my neighbor, then it means near at home (of course! lol). Although I always clean our house and always spray it for mosquitoes killers, when we go outside there's a chance that my ZD will be bitten by a mosquito. Oh, just the thought of that makes me so worried. Hay nakakaloka talaga!

That's why we used mosquito net at night para sure. Then everyday nag spray ako. Prevention is better than cure.

The good thing,  our baranggay has new program called "ABKD" (Action Baranggay Kontra Dengue). Our kapitbahay called that as "PAUSOK PARA SA LAMOK"  hahaha!

Early  in the morning when I bought something our breakfast I saw these brgy. workers - nag house to house sila para pausukan ang mga bahay, I was so happy because of it kasi it's really a big help for us specially to our community to avoid dengue.

Here are some photos taken:

Thank you to all the baranggay workers for the efforts and your service :) Mabuhay kayo!!

Prevention is Better than Cure:

There is no vaccine available against dengue, and there are no specific medications to treat a dengue infection.

The best way to reduce mosquitoes is to eliminate the places where the mosquito lays her eggs, like artificial containers that hold water in and around the home. Outdoors, clean water containers like pet and animal watering containers, flower planter dishes or cover water storage barrels.  Look for standing water indoors such as in vases with fresh flowers and clean at least once a week.

Thank you for reading, keep safe all and God bless!


  1. Sana matigil na ang dengue. Yung ibang kakilala ko nagkaron ma ng dengue yung anak nila. Dami pa naman lamok dito. thanks for this info.

  2. THank you for sharing! We've had several cases of dengue already. That's why we're really taking a lot of precautions against it! We use OFF and Kiele's Anti dengue cologne too!

  3. Kuddos to your brgy. for this project! Dengue is really scary! And we must really go all out to protect our little ones and ourselves too.

  4. Dengue is such a terrifying disease. Hopefully other barangays follow suit.

  5. Dengue is really scary! Good thing that your barangay is doing something to prevent it. Stay safe!

  6. Though we don't have any incident reports of dengue in our place, i did notice some mosquitoes lurking in our place. I've sprayed baygon a lot of times whenever we leave our house for a long time but they still keep on coming. I just make sure to spread mosquito repellent lotions to my kids.

  7. Dengue is so frightening! Just a few weeks back, she had a fever and I had her checked for Dengue. Thank goodness, the result was negative.


  8. I wish our barangay would also do the same. Thanks for sharing!

  9. I remember this pausok when we were in elementary kasi regular yung pausok nila. Great safety measure against dengue.

  10. kudos to your community for coming up with such initiative, I believe all barangays in the country should follow suit. it was frightening to be hearing about the epidemic of dengue here in our province and we are simply most fortunate that we are not affected. we should all be cautious to be on the safe side.
