The Philippines now holds the number 1 spot among the countries most affected by disasters caused by weather.

According to the Global Climate Risk Index 2015, the country is topmost among nations adversely affected by typhoons, floods, and heat waves—taking into account the events that happened in 2013. 


Due to climate change, people are becoming more prone to different types of diseases. As reported by DZMM during an interview with Department of Health Secretary Janette Garin, the public should be cautious of water-borne and vector-borne diseases, such as dengue, chikungunya, and malaria. 

According to Garin, one should also be on the lookout for symptoms like cough, colds, and fever, which could be rampant, especially during the rainy days. 


Usually, people stay indoors to reduce the risk of being sick. However, some experts warn that staying in does not spare one from getting ill, because of the germs lurking inside the house.

But with proper hygiene and sanitation, one could minimize the risk. Besides regular handwashing, keeping the house clean and germ-free is crucial, particularly in the bathroom, where disease-causing bacteria prowl and thrive.


Experts suggest using a strong antibacterial solution that kills all known types of bacteria*, like Domex. As it is 5x thicker than laundry bleach, it thoroughly cleanses the toilet bowl—providing a wider range of protection. 

Domex is also formulated to stay on the bowl for at least 7 flushes, which makes it germ-free for longer.

Remember: Just because you’re inside the house, it doesn’t mean that you and your family are 100% safe from getting ill. To give your family that much-needed protection, use Domex, the germ kill expert. To give your family the same trusted protection for the SRP of P6, Domex has now introduced Domex Toilet Cleaner 30mL Sachet. 

Now, more people can have access to safer toilets with the brand that promises to “kill all known germs”! For more information on Domex, click here.

*when used undiluted, it kills germs—including bacteria, virus and fungi
