Oropouche fever sets off alarm bells in Ciego de Ávila

Health authorities in the province of Ciego de Avila are concerned about the increase in the number of cases of fever that occur daily in the territory.

The population links the high body temperature with the virus currently circulating strongly in the countries of the Americas, known as Oropouche fever.

And it is not exactly the so-called fever that should indicate that one is suffering from this ailment, which is why one should be aware of its symptoms and go to the doctor immediately so that the doctor can determine what it is due to.

Oropouche fever has symptoms similar to dengue fever, with the appearance of high temperatures, intense head, muscle and joint pain, stomach discomfort and in some cases skin rashes.

The disease has been identified as being transmitted by the bite of the midges and Culex mosquitoes found on the island.

The elimination and control of these vectors contributes socially to prevent the spread of the disease, and once again we call on the population to carry out systematic autofocals in their homes and places of public affluence.

Infested people have a period of seven days to recover, but there are cases that suffer complications, hence the importance of attending the family doctor so that the physician can indicate the course of action to follow.

Once again, the alarm bells are ringing for these viruses, which are so common in tropical countries and which become more common in rainy seasons, such as the one we are currently experiencing.
