Diarrhea, Cholera, Typhoid Fever, Amoebiasis, these are the usual cases of water borne-diseases that occurs during rainy season.
These diseases are caused by drinking contaminated water.
However, Sanitation Inspector III, Babylin Fronduza said in an interview that Public particularly in Boracay Island should not be worried.
This is because they are monthly monitoring household tap water.
Besides, Boracay people’s main sources of water are Boracay Tubig and Boracay Island Water Company, which she said are also doing their routine check-ups.
She added that they are not bothered even if it’s rainy season since most of the people here in the island are not using deep well.
Yet, they stay vigilant especially on the mainland as most of the household’s uses deep/ shallow well.
