Fight against dengue fever through Vila Xavier, Santana, Nova América and Adalgisa – Araraquara City Hall

This Friday (13), measures to promote the control of the Aedes aegypti mosquito and curb the dengue epidemic in the city will be held in six districts in the city of Araraquara. Representatives of epidemiological surveillance to carry out endemic diseases carry out house-to-house inspections to look for possible breeding sites in the vicinity of Vila Xavier, Vila Santana, Jardim Nova América and Jardim Adalgisa. The spraying passes through Quitandinha, while the smoke is carried out in the Jardim das Flores.

With 80% of dengue breeding sites in dwellings, City Hall visits an average of 30,000 houses a month and half of them have lost their jobs due to a lack of an entry permit.

Epidemiological surveillance agents for the control of endemic diseases always work in uniforms, gray shirts and brown vests in addition to official cars. It is important to note the credentials of the broker and authorize his entry. In case of doubt, the resident can also call Vector Control at 3303-3123 and 3303-3124. For more information, call the Ombudsman for Epidemiological Surveillance at 0800-7740440 or WhatsApp at City Hall, (16) 99760-1190.

It is good to remember that waste, solid waste, space-consuming (sofas, armchairs and mattresses) and fires in cities and rural areas also cause damage to health and the environment. Complaints to the authorities can be made by calling 0800 770 1595.
