Dengue control team arrives in the vicinity of Jabuticabeiras and Nova Esperança this Monday

The municipality of Umuarama is taking joint action to combat dengue fever by collecting waste and rubbish from the Jabuticabeiras and Nova Esperança de Umuarama areas. The activity will take place next Monday (May 2) and it is recommended that the population leave the materials on the sidewalk of the dwellings.
