“When the government agencies issue warnings through various media platforms, they should not be hard-headed and instead follow it,” Marañon said.
“We should be always careful,” he said, mentioning the fishermen and those residing along riverbanks, he said.
Marañon also called on parents to be careful as the onset of rainy season also means the increase in dengue cases.
“Parents should clean their surroundings especially in areas where there is standing water and drainage,” he said.*
