With 652 cases of dengue fever reported in the province so far this year, all 12 districts of Phichit will soon be declared dengue outbreak control zones.
A committee in charge of disease control made the call this week in a bid to integrate efforts by all pertinent government agencies.
The committee was told that 652 residents of 263 villages in 77 tambon had fallen ill with mosquito-borne virus since the beginning of the year, most of them 10 to 14 years old.
There are 126 people currently being treated.
Outbreak areas are being sprayed with insecticide.
