PHO, Provincial Health Officer Dr. Reymoses said last week his office is calling for a continued practice of the 4 o'clock habit in the afternoon of cleaning up the stagnant water to destroy the mosquitoes' life cycle. What the PHO can do is to just remind and call on the public for keeping up and sustain the said practice of 4 o'clock habit because it cannot do otherwise as there's no law forcing the populace to do the upkeep, Cabagnot said.
