Additional Information: p 130: "Initially established only in the extreme north around Lake Mainit [592, 702, 795], S. japonicum endemicity was later found to prevail throughout the Davao-Agusan Trough; mass examinations to this end were conducted by Pesigan, and were later continued by the Schistosomiasis Control and Research Service [540, 595, 597, 610, 704-706]. There are about 1.9 million people in this endemic area of around 6,000 km2, more than 260,000 of whom are infected, according to data supplied by the Schistosomiasis Control Council [705]. Because of differences in the population density, which is high in Surigao del Norte, but very low in Agusan del Sur (to cite just a few examples) in regard to the prevalence rates, the affected provinces show considerable variations in the figures for case densities (cf Table 29, as well as 3.5.5)."
