breaking epidemics during and after the predicament, his agency has already drawn a

plan as to averting such situation.

The General Manager who also conducted a tour of the camps which hold the victims of

the flood mishap inspecting the sanitary conditions of the settlement camps emphasized

the need for proper sanitary practices in the camps so as to avoid potential outbreaks.

safer amenities such as water and provision of better sanitary ends.
