Watchmen Daily Journal - - NEWS -

The Ne­gros Oc­ci­den­tal Pro­vin­cial Vet­eri­nary Of­fice (PVO) re­cently re­ceived new mod­ern mi­cro­scope equip­ment, which will make the mon­i­tor­ing of ra­bies eas­ier.

PVO head, Dr. Renante De­cena, said they started us­ing the equip­ment in or­der to ob­tain con­fir­ma­tory di­ag­no­sis for cases.

The PVO of­fi­cial said di­ag­nos­ing ra­bies is faster com­pared to us­ing a com­pound mi­cro­scope.

Based on re­cent PVO records, they have recorded 30 pos­i­tive ra­bies cases in the province this year with one con­firmed fa­tal­ity last month in Hi­ma­may­lan City.
