Compared to the same period last year (first 15 weeks of the year), there will already be more than double the number of confirmed initial cases in 2022 (when contamination occurs within the RS). There were 3,906 cases last year, compared with 10,536 this year. This year, another 1,900 cases of imports were recorded, in which the person lives in the RS but the disease occurred in another state.

Of the initial cases confirmed this year, 61% are concentrated in eight cities, four of which, according to official SES data, are in the region: Porto Alegre (1,504 cases), Lajeado (1,215), Parobe (885), Little Church (801)Rodeo Bonito (716), Arroio do Meio (495), Two brothers (475) and Old Estancia (380). The data also reflect the high level of testing conducted in the municipalities.

Infection in 89% of Rio Grande do Sul cities

There are 442 municipalities in Rio Grande do Sul that are considered to be contaminated by Aedes aegypt. It is the largest number of cities in this situation, according to the Ministry of Health, in a historic monitoring series conducted since 2000.

The apparent number of cases and the high prevalence of the insect in the Rio Grande do Sul area prompted SES to strengthen prevention measures with the population. The main action is the removal of stagnant water sites that serve as points of development for mosquito larvae. This increase occurs more at this time of year, which associates high temperatures with repeated rains.
