Epidemiological surveillance maintained in Chambas facing the mosquito spread

Although Chambas currently shows an Aedes Aegypti focal index of 0.07, below the permissible indicator, the territory’s health authorities call not to neglect vector control at a time of year conducive to its spread.

It was the warning transmitted by Damaris Ferrón Hernández, municipal director of hygiene and epidemiology, who specified that in the month of June nine outbreaks of the mosquito have been detected, five larvae and four adults; This last data is the most worrying because it indicates the presence of the transmitter of different diseases.

Ferrón Hernández added that it is vitally important that people do not hide suspicious symptoms of conditions such as dengue and go immediately to the doctor. In this way, case blocking is applied and transmission is cut off.

Questioned about the availability of resources for the anti-vector campaign, the hygiene director in Chambas explained that there is abate, the insecticide to fumigate and oil. Although she clarified that what the protocol indicates is that a block is fumigated when 3 factors come together there: presence of febrile cases, a positive IGM test, in addition to the detection of foci.

The heat and the rains are typical climatic elements of the summer, and represent the ideal conditions for an increase in sources, which also requires individual responsibility in the sanitation of patios and surroundings of the houses. (Yaimer Mujica Perez)
