Dr. Leda M. Hernandez, chief of the DOH's National Center for Disease Prevention said these plantations are convenient breeding grounds for mosquitoes, making communities around them susceptible to infection. Hernandez said mosquitoes use the axils of banana and abaca leaves as breeding areas. Health officials announced Friday that 56 percent of the cases of paralytic disease filariasis caused by mosquitoes in the Philippines are in Mindanao. Hernandez also cited a similar case with malaria, another disease carried by vector mosquitoes. Hernandez clarified further that the plantations are just one of the many causes of the spread of parasitic diseases in Mindanao.She cited natural environment, sanitation and proper waste disposal as contributory factors. She urged communities around plantations to observe sanitation.She, however, said that spraying of control chemicals against mosquitoes and fungicides is not effective."It will just drive away the mosquitoes to other areas.The more effective way is for people take medicines," she said. Gako and Hernandez joined Davao-based health officials in launching the mass drug administration here Friday for the government's campaign against filariasis. Hernandez said the effort is part of the government's Formula One program on intensified prevention and control.
