EXPERTS ARE WORKING TOGETHER TO CURB DENGUE OUTBREAKS AFTER NATURAL DISASTERS
On November 8, 2013, Typhoon Haiyan hit the central provinces in the Philippines with a force that had never been seen before. The most commonly used satellite-based intensity scale showed that the typhoon was literally off-the-charts—registering at above 8.0.
The Philippines is the most typhoon-ridden nation on Earth, walloped with an average of 20 typhoons a year. Add this, coupled with the fact that dengue is endemic in the country, is a recipe for disaster.
