The report noted: "Health Secretary Enrique Ona said the DOH was coordinating with local government units, the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) and the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) to prevent the proliferation of mosquito breeding sites that may arise from ongoing road repairs, diggings and rehabilitation of major thoroughfares."
