Calamba, Laguna Typhoid Fever Relief

A medical mission geared toward providing residents with free check-up and medicines like hyposol is currently being carried out by the Philippine National Red Cross (PNRC) together with the city health office, the television report added.

PNRC chairman and Sen. Richard Gordon personally checked with the victims from Barangay Sucol, where more than 900 people had already been hit by the virus.

A separate radio report quoted local village officials in Sucol as even noting a curious trend there where the victims being rushed to hospitals were mostly pregnant women.

The organization is also holding a series of forums where health experts and government officials speak and provide pointers to locals for the prevention of the deadly disease.

Gordon has vowed to send in more tents and beds for the ailing patients.
