In the Philippines more than 622 people—most of whom are children under five years old—have died from dengue so far this year.

The country is seeing more than 5,100 new cases each week. In at least one province, tents are serving as makeshift treatment centers to deal with the crush of patients. The Philippines declared the outbreak a National Epidemic in August.
